Originally painted as a section of the curtain for the Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russe over three weeks in London, the painting was was acquired by Phyllis Lambert for the Four Seasons. It depicts a Spanish bullring.  It hung on the Four Seasons Wall for many years until Aby Rosen bought the building.  He undertook a renovation of the restaurant and decided to remove the curtain in order to 'preserve' it in the middle of the night.  Many people were concerned; articles were written; and the curtain ended up at the New York Historical Society.
