The painting is a study of a variety of sheep from different aspects. Bonheur was best known for her depictions of animals. She also made sculptures in a realist style. The artist worked from direct observation of nature. When Bonheur was a child, her father allowed her to pursue her in interest in painting animals by bringing live animals to the family's studio for studying. She kept a small menagerie, frequented slaughterhouses, and dissected animals to gain anatomical knowledge of them.
