Elephant Combat


Description Provenance Credit
Description This single-leaf painting of elephants in combat, Walters manuscript leaf W.715, was executed in India during the 13th century AH/AD 19th in an archaizing style referencing Mughal traditions of the 11th century AH/AD 17th. The image of the mounted mahout, a person who drives an elephant, reproduces a popular theme in court painting in South Asia.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
