Legros, Dalou, and Rodin were old friends, having attended the Petit École du Dessin together (only Rodin would then fail to win acceptance to the more prestigious École des Beaux-Arts). Legros moved to England in 1863, where he remained for the rest of his life. He executed this striking portrait of Dalou during the latter’s English exile. Having supported the failed Paris Commune uprising of 1871, Dalou fled France and spent eight years in England before receiving amnesty in 1879.
