Painted by J.T. Seton Engraved by John Jones [1785]
Mezzotint, sheet 480 x 345mm (19 x 13½"). Trimmed inside platemark, losing publication line; glued to backing sheet. Very rare.
Warren Hastings (1732-1818), governor-general of Bengal from 1772 until 1785. He transformed the East India Company from a trading organisation into a great military and naval power. He established full-scale British civil administration in India, but his methods led to a trial for corruption at which he was acquitted in 1795. Rare, almost full-length mezzotint after a portrait by John Thomas Seton (1735-c.1806), portrait painter in Bengal 1776-1785. Seton's time in Bengal was a successful one and in 1783 he purchased a house in the avenue behind Hastings' residence. The purchase reflected Seton's growing reputation, which led to him painting Hastings' portrait the following year. The painting by Seton on which this mezzotint is based is in the Victoria Memorial Hall, Calcutta.
