Description Formerly known as "Entry of the Toreadors," this painting should be titled "Toreros at Prayer before entering the Arena. " Eduardo Zamacois and Vibert traveled to Spain and, in 1866, they entered in the Paris salon a collaborative work entitled "Entree des Toreros." The Walters painting, however, originally bore the date of 1871.
