The rabbit on the painting is a great aristocrat from the year 1789, Marquis de Boissy et du Coudray, Captain of the Languedoc-dragoons regiment.

He was stingy as he was rich. He frequently took the stagecoach by sitting on the roof with the luggage to pay less. This was called "Rabbit Riding"

On one of his Birthdays, his friends jokingly gave him this painting. The painter did not sign the painting from fear of repercussions.
