Information about author
A multi-figured, multiplanar composition. On the left, a Tatar ruler in a turban with a grey beard sits on a carpet under a canopy. Beside him sits a well-dressed warrior. In front of the canopy is a broken jewellery box, with broken dishes and various cold weapons lying a little further away. To the right in front of the box is an Arabic man on his knees, looking at the treasures. In the centre is a group of mounted Tartars, in front of them, are prisoners, among them women. One of the warriors wearing a cloak and a Mongolian hat with a pointy top is pointing at a young girl. Another warrior also holds her by the arm and at the same time with his right hand lifts a second half-naked woman from the ground. To the right, four women are sitting on the ground, two Tatars are trying to lift them off the ground. Behind them, a carriage filled with looted treasure can be seen. In the distance on the right can be seen the wagons of other Tatars. On the left are the walls of the fortress. Stanislaw Daczynski was very thorough in his choice of subject. The authenticity of the reproduced characters' costumes, weapons and horse armour is impressive.
