Skirmish scenes with Mamelukes belong to most favorite subject matters in paintings of famous Napoleonic horse and battle artist Antoine Charles Horace Vernet, called Carle Vernet. Beginning in 1804, he repeatedly showed "Mamelukes" paintings at the Salon de Paris (see our images nr.12-16). Similarly, Dr. H. Mireur's "Dictionnaire des Ventes D'Art" published in 1911 in Paris refers to a great number of such paintings offered at various French auction houses in the 19th century.
It is very likely that our painting is one of aforementioned listed works.

Antoine Charles Horace (called Carle) Vernet was born in 1758 in Bordeaux as a son of the marine painter Claude Joseph Vernet (1714-1789). Raised in his father's workshop, already as a child, he was eagerly drawing horses. At the age of 11 years Vernet entered the studio of N.B.Lepicie. In 1779 and 1782 he was awarded Rome prizes for historical painting and spent three years in Rome. In 1789 the artist became an agréé of Academia Royale, but never acquired a full membership at the academy. In 1806 he was appointed a painter of War Depot and in 1810 became a member of Institute. The artist died in Paris in 1836. As a first-class horse drawing master Vernet belonged to the beginners of lithography in France (first attempts undertaken in 1816). Especially popular are his scenes of Napoleonic battles.

Our additional images nr.19-25 show a lot of other "Mamelukes" scenes by Carle Vernet.

Provenance: auction house "Wooley & Wallis", Salisbury, Wittshire /UK, 16th of June 2010, lot 331 (as "French School, ca. 1800")
