The painting belonged to Prince Farhad Mirza and a colophon in the bottom right hand corner ascribes the work to the famous Qajar painter Mahmud Malik Al-Shu'ra'. The painting can be compared to other works of Mahmud and share with the present painting similar features such as the treatment of the trees and clouds, as well as some architectural elements. This watercolour depiction of Mecca is remarkable for its accuracy and represents the earliest known eyewitness record of the city. The artwork provides a view of the historical architecture of Mecca representing as it does a moment frozen in time. With the advent of the modern age nearly all the historical buildings have been replaced with state-of-the-art schools, hospitals and hotels to accommodate the millions of pilgrims visiting the city each year.
