The African scene referred to in the title is an invention by the artist, but amazingly all the animals shown in the painting at one time lived in the parkland surrounding Owston Hall, which still stands to the north of Doncaster near Askern. The painting was commissioned by Philip Davies Cooke of Owston Hall in 1828. In the following year, it was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London.
