To serve as a model for the subject, Barye purchased a greyhound that he named Tom. George A. Lucas, the Baltimore expatriate living in Paris who was William T. Walters' advisor, had the six bronze casts made of the plaster model 20 years later.
Provenance William T. Walters, Baltimore, 1889 [mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1894, by inheritance; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
