Like many artists of the time, Bracquemond often observed animals in the Paris zoo and imagined them free, echoing the fantasy of escape from urban life. In these etchings, game birds cluster in the mist, a lone wolf walks into the winter wilderness, and a dead rabbit symbolizes the omnipresence of death as humans encroach upon the natural world. Bracquemond was heavily influenced by Japanese culture and its reverence for animals, and he printed his etchings on Japanese paper.
