Ruins of Baugnee-Ghur near Hydrabad
Artist: Anburey, Sir Thomas (1759-1840)
Medium: Aquatint with etching, coloured
This is plate 2 from 'Hindoostan Scenery consisting of Twelve Select Views in India' by Francis Jukes (1746-1812) and Thomas Anburey (1759-1840) of the Corps of Engineers in Bengal.
Anburey served with the Bengal Army as a surveyor, travelling along a route from Seringapatam to Hyderabad and on through Berar to Kalpi between 1792 and 1793. The picturesque sketches he produced along this journey were the first of this region ever to reach the British public.
