About the Print

The painting of the Lion of Punjab upon which this is engraving was based was commissioned by Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s trusted Italian officer, General Ventura, and gifted to King Louis-Philippe (1773–1850) of France as a mark of friendship between the two nation states. The finished work included a Tricolour being carried by a cavalryman to reflect Gallic influence at the Sikh court of Lahore.
