Striking aquatint of a Mamluk leader by the acclaimed French artist Carle Vernet (1758-1836), best known for his depiction of horses and war scenes. The Mamluk leader is depicted in traditional garb with a scimitar dangling from a robe in his hand, on a horse, with a fighting scene in the background in front of a Middle Eastern town. The engraver, Jean Pierre Jazet ( 1788-1871), must have been a skilled artist himself.
A fine copy in a crisp impression.
Dayot, Carle Vernet (1925), no. 102; Nagler XXII, p. 440; cf. Mennessier de la Lance II, p. 617.
