This black and white print shows an outdoor setting with two men, one reclining and facing the viewer, the other seated with his legs drawn into his chest and gazing out to the right. They are dressed in robes and wear Arabic headdresses ("Guhtra"). There are rifles at their sides. In the background on the right are two men, one riding a horse, who walk toward a group of buildings in the distance. There is a French inscription below this scene that identifies the artist, title and publisher of the print.
Delacroix's visit to Algeria and Morocco in 1832 gave him direct experience with the exotic land and culture of North Africa. This scene depicting two hunters from the Algerian city of Oran shows both the dignified mien of the men as well as the accurately portrayed details of dress and weapons.
