Lithograph. Sheet: 380 x 330mm, (15 x 13").
Agra Fort is a monument located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. The present-day structure was built by the Mughals, though a fort had stood there since at least the 11th century. The plan of Arga was typical of Islamic cities; a citadel on the edge of a fortified enclosure (which could be used to grow food in times of siege) adjoining a walled town. This scene depicts the garden of the fort, with an Elephant to the left, and a figure in traditional dress in the centre, standing in front of the highly decorative arches that surround the garden. Prince Waldemar of Prussia (1817-1849), encouraged by Alexander von Humboldt, commenced a scientific expedition to India in September 1844, reaching Calcutta in January 1845 via Athens, Egypt, and Ceylon, and travelled on to Patna, Kathmandu, Benaras, Delhi, Naini Tal and into Tibet. While the Anglo-Sikh wars ranged about them, the expedition gathered a huge amount of specimens and data on the cultural, historical, social and political scenery of India, and Waldemar, a keen and talented artist, made hundreds and hundreds of fine sketches and watercolours, depicting landscapes, village life and monuments as well as Anglo-Sikh battles. These were later skilfully turned into lithographs and published as 'Zur Erinnerung an die Reise nach Indien 1844-46'.

Ahmednuggur is a city on the river Seena, around 120 miles from Mumbai (Bombay). Its ancient name, Bhingar, was changed by the Nizam Ahmed Shah (1494), who added new buildings. The eastern wall of Hussein Shah (1562), the mausoleum of Salabut Jung, and the palace of the Sultans still remain. About half a mile from the town is the fort, an oval stone structure nearly one mile in circumference. It was captured by Wellington in 1803, and in 1817 the whole place came under British rule.

Bodh Gaya is a religious site and place of pilgrimage associated with the Mahabodhi Temple Complex of the Gaya district in the Indian state of Bihar. It is famous as the place where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained enlightenment. The complex contains the Mahabodhi Temple, depicted here, with the diamond throne (called the Vajrasana) and the holy Bodhi tree. Prince Waldemar of Prussia (1817-1849), encouraged by Alexander von Humboldt, commenced a scientific expedition to India in September 1844, reaching Calcutta in January 1845 via Athens, Egypt, and Ceylon, and travelled on to Patna, Kathmandu, Benaras, Delhi, Naini Tal and into Tibet. While the Anglo-Sikh wars ranged about them, the expedition gathered a huge amount of specimens and data on the cultural, historical, social and political scenery of India, and Waldemar, a keen and talented artist, made hundreds and hundreds of fine sketches and watercolours, depicting landscapes, village life and monuments as well as Anglo-Sikh battles. These were later skilfully turned into lithographs and published as 'Zur Erinnerung an die Reise nach Indien 1844-46'.

After a period of nearly eight months of almost total absence of rain, it descends with a violence unknown beyond the tropics, producing an effect ... which has the appearance of magic; the surface of the earth ... assumes, in the short space of three or four days the most brilliant verdure.' Grindlay (1786-1877) worked for the East India Company and was an artist in his spare time. During his stay in India he made a large collection of sketches and drawings.

'The religious festivals of the Hindoos consist in worshipping the images of the gods, offering up sacrifices (poojahs) and spending the remainder of the day in entertainments, dances and other amusements...in that which we are now describing, after having carried the gods in procession during several days, they convey their images to the river; and place them on the edge of two boats drawn alongside each othert. There, their adoration is followed by the grossest invectives, and the most violent imprecations...to terminate this strange and inexplicable demeanour, the two boats are separated, and the images of the gods precipitated into the river amidst the acclamations of the multitude. 'The engraving represents this moment. In the foreground is a sideview of the boats and of the position of the gods as well as of the brahmuns, the musicians, and principal actors in the ceremony. In another distance the boats are represented in front to give an idea of their separation; on the right are the assistants and spectators. 'The principal figure is that of the goddess Calkee, wife of Shieb, the genius of evil' (from letterpress published with print). From the first volume of Balthazar Solvyns' 'Les Hindoûs'. Solvyns (1760-1824), a Flemish artist who lived in Calcutta from 1791 to 1803, etched a collection of 250 plates documenting various aspects of Calcutta life.

View to the north-west of Calcutta, documenting on the frequent storms, which take their name from the direction of the wind. The accompanying letterpress described 'a dreadful noise which seems to announce the confusion of all the elements. The clouds thicken, and are torn by continual flashes of lightning; the thunder roars, and torrents of rain often deluge the country...the river then assumes the appearance of a boisterous sea, and sometimes overwhelms the vessels which have not had the prudence to fly for shelter to the creeks or canals'. From the third volume of Balthazar Solvyns' 'Les Hindoûs'. Solvyns (1760-1824), a Flemish artist who lived in Calcutta from 1791 to 1803, etched a collection of 250 plates documenting various aspects of Calcutta life. The set was first published in Calcutta, where it proved a financial failure, and Solvyns produced another set which he published in Paris after returning to Europe, although again the venture was unsuccessful, probably in part due to its publication at the height of the Napoleonic Wars. Solvyns later returned to Antwerp, where William I appointed him Captain of the Port.
