Like many of his contemporaries Edwin Lord Weeks used photographs taken on one of his many trips to the distant world of the Orient and compiled encyclopaedic notes into his travel sketchbooks Using the fictional devices used to represent the world of the Orient, Weeks created scenes that felt as familiar to contemporary viewers as Week's polar opposite; Impressionist paintings on modern life. Great Mogul And His Court Returning From The Great Mosque At Delhi India, completed around 1886, is a monumental work from a student of Jean-LÃ©on GÃ©rÃ´me, the technical master and much-lauded member of the French Academic tradition. Prefiguring the monumental bombast of technicolor Hollywood epics, Weeks was a unique figure in the United States. A pioneer in his own field, the artist created almost experiential reproductions of historical and mythological scenes, featuring unique and surprising iconography. With a constant intermingling of genres, blending values, time periods, and continental morals, Great Mogul And His Court Returning From The Great Mosque At Delhi India is a perfect representation of Weeks' skilful blurring of fiction and reality.
Great Mogul And His Court Returning From The Great Mosque At Delhi India features the eponymous elephants that were intrinsically linked with pre-colonial India in the popular mindset.
Transforming the genre of history painting through his painterly — almost photographic - reproductions of both factual and mythological figures as living and experiencing beings, Weeks blends a sense of colonial voyeurism with a perceived sense of moral superiority. Hugely influencing the staging of mid-twentieth century Hollywood epics, and even Bollywood iconography, Weeks' Great Mogul And His Court Returning From The Great Mosque At Delhi India has become an iconic image. A preeminent pseudo-historical snapshot, Weeks' canvas reveals a fresh and unique balance between imaginative reproduction and documentary mise-en-scene.
