This dramatic, highly detailed picture creates a snapshot of a moment in the game. The brush work is extremely fine and the detail precise. The horses are particularly well portrayed. The polo ground is set against a rising landscape leading to distant hills. The umpire, often absent in polo art, here takes a central role in the action.
