Sketched at Calcutta. E.E. [Emily Eden] 1841. [Lithographed by Lowes Dickinson.]
[London: J. Dickinson & Son, 1844.]
Rare tinted lithograph. Sheet 460 x 370mm (18 x 14½"), with large margins.
Head and shoulders portraits of Dost Mohammed Khan, his two sons Muhammad Akram Khan and Haider Khan, and his cousin Abd al-Ghani Khan, from Emily Eden's 'Portraits of the Princes & Peoples of India'. Dost Mohammed Khan had been Emir of Afghanistan until he was deposed by the British in 1839 at the beginning of the First Afghan War and exiled to Mussoorie. He returned to the throne after the disasterous conclusion to the war for the British. The Hon. Emily Eden, the seventh daughter of William Eden, first baron Auckland, accompanied her brother, George, Lord Auckland (1784-1849) to India, where he served as Governor-General from 1835-1842. A highly gifted amateur artist and writer, Eden recorded her observations of life in India during this period in the form of letters and an extensive collection of sketches, meeting people like Dost Mohammed using her brother's influence. On her return to England in 1842, Eden arranged to have her images printed privately as a portfolio of 24 lithographs.
