Toreros at Prayer before Entering the Arena


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
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.
