This is a multi-figure composition that depicts thirteen Arab horsemen dressed in white clothing. The rider in the center of the composition, with his right hand raised up, seems to be indicating direction to the others. In the background, one can see the outlines of the fortress (on the right side) and a building with three arches in the style of Arabic architecture. In the lower left corner of the work, a dead brown horse and two male bodies are depicted; one of the bodies is dressed in a French military uniform with epaulettes.
