The artist travelled extensively in Russia, Syria and North Africa, and lived in Paris from 1862 until the Franco-Prussian War, when he returned to Germany. The events of that war may well have inspired him to create this harrowing painting, although the terrain suggests that it may be a Cossack subject. Horses were a favourite subject of Schreyer's: he is best known for his romantic paintings of Arab horsemen.
