Subject

India

Description

Contining in the tradition of this ekphrastic practice, the 1833 volume of Fisher's Drawing Room Scrap-Book includes the rare engraving of England at home interspersed between engravings and poems about British colonial holdings. Compare the scene in this engraving to that in the "Delhi" engraving from the 1831 to understand how artists focused on the agrarian and sometimes violent depictions of India as opposed to the bucolic leisure of England at home.
