The work

The painting portrays the Battle of Issus in 333 BC, in which Alexander the Great won a decisive victory over Darius III of Persia and gained crucial leverage in his campaign against the Persian Empire. The painting is widely regarded as Altdorfer 's masterpiece and is one of the most famous examples of the type of Renaissance landscape painting known as the world landscape, which here achieves unprecedented grandeur.

Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria commissioned The Battle of Alexander at Issus in 1528 as part of a series of historical pieces that were to hang in his Munich residence.
