The Hague, Tentoonstelling van Kunstwerken van Levende Meesters, 1872, p.34, no.259 (nlg. 1200,-): 'When at Sevilla there will be a bullfight in the afternoon, one goes in the morning with some tame bulls, accompanied by their guardians on horseback, to the field where the wild bulls are. The tame bulls, trained for this purpose, mix with the wild ones and together they leave, while grazing, the field. In particular at festivities, the people come along, merrily singing and dancing. Once the wild bulls have left the field, the procession makes way to the place of the fight, even more excited. The landscape painted is near Sevilla and is traversed by the Guadalquivir.'
