General description as provided by the museum (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Dressed stylishly, in emulation of Mameluke warriors who came to Paris with Napoleon from Egypt after 1798, this puckish boy clutches his toys jealously—even as he holds out the possibility of a ball toss. The early history of the portrait remains unknown, as does the child’s identity, though the well-appointed interior and overall effect of playful indulgence point to aristocratic origins. The canvas is considerably larger than the estimated 4,500 bust-length portraits that Boilly produced.
