Artist: Hodges, William (1744-1797)
Medium: Aquatint with etching, coloured
This is plate 8 from William Hodges' book 'Select Views in India'. This aquatint by William Hodges is based on his own 1781 drawing, made at Ghazipur. Shujah ud-Daulah, who was the Nawab of Oudh from 1754 to 1775, assigned the governship of Ghazipur to Faiz Ali Khan. At the time of Hodges' visit, several edifices erected by Faiz Ali Khan still remained.
