In a letter to his mother of November 21 or 22, 1862, Bazille wrote: "On Wednesday I went with Edouard [Féline] to see Victor Féline and his wife at St. Germain. We went for a ride and had dinner together. I saw quantities of deer, fallow deer, roe deer and pheasants up close".

It seems to us today that this drawing is more devoted to horses.
