Water-colour painting of Mysore by Neil Cormack (fl. 1814-1837) dated to either 1823 or between 1831 and 1837, during Cormack's residence in South India. Inscribed on the back in ink is: 'Mysore from the Tank. Neil Cormack.'

Mysore is situated in a valley in Karnataka in southern India. It was the political capital of the Wodeyars and under their patronage was embellished with many fine palaces, temples and gardens. In 1793 Mysore was levelled by Tipu Sultan in order to accommodate his new city. The British occupied the city after their defeat of Tipu Sultan in 1799 and installed Prince Krishnaraja Wodeyar (III) on the throne of his ancestors.
