[London, James S. Virtue.] [n.d., 1870.]
Chine collé steel engraving, proof before letters. 330 x 455mm (13 x 17¾"), with very wide margins. Printsellers' Association blind stamp.
The Battle of Miani, 17th February 1843, between the Bombay Army of the East India Company and the Baluch Army, Sind (now Pakistan). In the foreground men of a flank company of the 22nd Cheshire Regiment are shown charging the mass of Baluchi warriors in the dried-up bed of the River Fullaillee. The commander-in-chief, Sir Charles Napier, directs the battle from his horse in the background. Napier's victory over a force ten time the size of his own led to the fall of Hyderabad two days later. Exhibited in Westminster Hall in 1847, Armitage's painting won a premium of £500 and was seen and purchased by Queen Victoria for £400. Napier, however, was critical: ''in Armitage's I am in rear of the troops – whereas I was in front the whole time… Armitage has placed me where I was, as regards the ground; but he has placed the troops wrongly as they did not fight down in the Bed of the river''. The finished plate was published in 'Gems of European Art'.
