Born in Cambrai, Carlier was a student at the fine arts academies of Cambrai and Valenciennes. He later joined the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, under François Jouffroy, Jules Cavelier and Henri Chapu. He debuted at the Salon in Paris circa 1875 with his statue of the chronicler Enguerrand de Monstrelet. His most famous work, Gilliat Struggling with the Octopus, won second prize at the Musée de Valenciennes in 1897. 

The present figure epitomises Carlier's virtuoso treatment of figures in motion. The figure stands bracing herself against the violent wind, her body taut as she withstands the impact. The drama echoes that of the Gilliat, in which the male figure's form is strained, ready for movement. For Carlier's dynamic treatment of the female form, compare also his Panyre aux Talons d'Or and Baigneuse Debout.
