Between 1858 and 1860 Carl Haag travelled extensively in the Middle East. In October 1859 he made the acquaintance of Sheikh Medjuel el Mezrab and his English wife, Jane Digby, formally, Lady Ellenborough (1807-1881). The Sheikh was the leader of the Sebbah tribe and he granted Haag permission to travel to Palmyra and paint the ruins of Queen Zenobia's ancient city. The present watercolour, which is impressive in its scope and scale, was exhibited by Haag upon his return to London in 1860.
