Artist: Daniell, Thomas (1749-1840)
Medium: Pencil on paper
Pencil and wash drawing by Thomas and William Daniell of a scene near Faiz 'Ali Khan's Garden at Ghazipur, dated 30 November 1788. Inscribed on front in pencil: '36'; on back in pencil is: 'No. 15. Ghazepoor'; and in ink: 'No. 75. Near Fyz Ali Khan's Garden Ghazipoor'.
Ghazipur, situated 135 miles west of Patna, was a centre of opium trade of the East India Company. The Daniells visited many buildings there. In his Journal William wrote, "27th November 1788: Mr Charteris was kind enough to take us to the nabob's Gardens where we were very much entertained. There were in the Garden the family tombs of [Fyz Ali Khan], which Hodges has made a very incorrect Aquatinta print of." This drawing possibly depicts the entrance towers and the enclosing wall of the garden.
