This painting is the largest of four variants of this subject painted by the artist; smaller versions are in the Wallace Collection, London, The Hermitage, St. Petersburg, and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes. The Washington version is the only one in which Camargo is accompanied by a male dancer and several spectators.
