It depicts six mounted soldiers, one from each of the Allies of World War I. The scene is cloudy but sunny, decorated by flowers, and is set within a square surround decorated with a pattern using the flags of the six ally nations: Japan, United Kingdom, Belgium, Russia, Serbia and France. The vivid colours, the ornaments, and the stylized characters reflect Dufy's taste for making vivid popular prints.
It is a woodcut on a silk scarf sold by Charvet Place Vendôme in 1915. It is 45 x 45 centimeters. There is a copy in the collection of the Centre national d'art et de culture Georges-Pompidou.
