Engraving. Sheet 340 x 250mm (13½ x 9¾"). Unfinished. Trimmed within image.
An oval portrait of Warren Hastings (1732-1818) with two Indians giving obeisance. As the first Governor-General of India (1772-85) 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.
