A battle of the Sikh Wars between British forces and Sikh troops, 1846 (c).

Watercolour by an Indian artist of the Punjab School, 1846 (c).

In the right foreground several Sikh soldiers try to escape the battle by boat or by swimming away. This suggests the painting may depict the Battle of Sobraon (1846), fought on the banks of the River Sutlej during the 1st Sikh War (1845-1846). This was the decisive battle of the campaign and ended in a British victory.
