This painting was purchased by Telfair’s first director, Carl Brandt, at the 1883 International Exposition in Munich, during his travels in Europe to collect works for the new museum Mary Telfair had founded. It may have been the first painting Brandt acquired for the collection. The artist, a hunter himself, was described by Brandt as “a painter of great repute.”
