From Walters Art Museum, Baltimore:
Delacroix described the spectacular and violent military pageantry at the court of Sultan Abd-er-Rahmen of Morocco (1778-1859), which he witnessed while accompanying Count Charles de Mornay on a diplomatic expedition on behalf of King Louis Philippe of France in 1832: "During their military exercises, which consist of riding their horses at full-speed and stopping them suddenly after firing a shot, it often happens that the horses carry away their riders and fight each other when they collide."
