This panel is part of a series that Sert produced for the decoration of Kent House, belonging to Sir Saxton Noble, in Knightsbridge, London. Like The Elephant Fountain, also in the Colección Santander, The Fountains Bridge was part of the decoration of one of the rooms in Kent House, although no description or photographs of the room or the works painted for it appear in José Maria Sert. His Life and Work by Alberto Castillo. The motif of elephants had already appeared in The Triumph of Apollo, also painted for Kent House (now in the Colección Santander), and in other panels in various different rooms in that house, including the Chimneypiece Room, which had a panel that also included fireworks and a bridge similar to the one in the present panel.
