Delacroix designed this lithograph shortly after his return from Morocco, where he had accompanied a diplomatic mission. While it is closely related to his 1833 painting of the same subject in the Musée du Louvre, the lithograph was never published during the artist’s lifetime. After his death, the stone was purchased by the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, which printed it.

Beneath the image, the printer is identified at lower right ("Imp[rimerie] Bertauts").

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
