Provenance: M. Sevadjian, Paris; Mary Burns Foss # W 1494 ILL 43.567; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Conn. Portraits of Uzbek prisoners in yokes appeared in Persian painting as early as the sixteenth century, and the motif continued as a theme into the nineteenth century. Members of an ethnic group from Central Asia, Uzbeks are identified by their style of clothing and weaponry. The inscriptions at either side of the painting mention the travels of the army from place to place.
