This is one of only three prints that does not contain a human subject. An avid butterfly collector, Jacoulet depicted a beautiful example in this print. The print appealed to the many butterfly collectors who were Jacoulet's most enthusiastic correspondents.
Miles notes that this print, "achieved real popularity, which Jacoulet cut off by sealing the blocks with steel bands and never reprinting."
