Surtees, A Catalogue Raisonné, vol. 1, 3 (no. 15).
Though unnumbered, this drawing seems to have been part of the series that included “The Bivouac after the Ball” and “The Day after the Ball”. Its violence suggests
that the entire series of drawings may have comprised a serious critical interpretation of
DGR's social world.
The drawing may be usefully compared with two important later watercolours, The Death of Brueze sans Pitié and A Fight for a Woman.
