It is a study for the heads of two figures in the foreground of Pils's famous picture Le passage de l'Alma par la division du général Bosquet le 20 septembre 1854. The Alma battle was an episode of the Crimean war which opposed the French and English troops against the Russians. Pils was commissioned to execute this huge canvas (5m x 9m) in 1857, for the musée de Versailles where it is still kept today.
