Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A View of Barrackpore House, Calcutta oil on canvas 20 x 32in. (50.8 x 81.3cm.) NOTES Arriving in Calcutta in 1798, the new Governor-General Marquess Wellesley began an ambitious building programme, beginning with the great Circular Road and a new and grandiose Government House to be fit for the Governor-General of India; Lord Valentia commented: 'I wish India to be ruled from a palace, not a counting house, with the ideas of a Prince, not with those of a retail dealer in muslins and indigo'. 'It was not only Government House, Calcutta, that Wellesley sought to improve...At Barrackpore, fourteen miles north of Calcutta, and a military cantonment, was a country retreat which had been purchased by the Government as a garden-house for the Commander-in-Chief, and which Lord Wellesley had appropriated in 1801. Lord Valentia describes Barrackpore in 1803: 'the situation of the house is much more pleasing than any thing I have yet seen. It is considerably elevated above the Hooghly river, on a very extended reach of which it stands: directly opposite is the Danish settlement of Serampore: on the sides are pagodas, villages and groves of lofty trees...the park is laid out in the English style; and the house, at present unfinished, is well adapted to the climate, having a beautiful verandah on every side, and the rooms being on a very ample scale...' (J.P. Losty, Calcutta, City of Palaces. A Survey of the City in the Days of the East India Company 1690-1858, London, 1990, pp.80-81) Barrackpore House was further extended by Warren Hastings (Governor-General 1813-1823) adding a second storey in 1814-15 (for which see Sir James Baillie Fraser's aquatint 'A View of Barrackpore House', 1819, plate 10 from Fraser's Views of Calcutta and its Environs, London, 1824-6). The present picture shows the house just before Hastings' additions and probably dates to 1813, shortly after the artist's return to Calcutta in 1812 following his posting as Collector of Dacca from 1808.

Description: the Gentleman, proposed to be worn at Mr Graham's 4th May Ball inscribed `by Sir Charles D'Oyly Bart.' and inscribed as title in the margin and further inscribed `DEDICATED to the PATRONESSES of the/MAY BALL'; pencil and watercolour heightened with white 7 3/4 x 9 1/2 in. (197 x 242 mm.) D'Oyly first arrived in India in 1797 and spent his first years in Calcutta. Later he became Collector in Dacca from 1808-1818 and was both a friend and a pupil of George Chinnery. He then took up the post of Opium Agent in Patna which, due to the ease of the job, enabled him to devote a great deal of time to his art. In 1827 he established one of earliest lithographic presses in India. He encouraged both the artistic activities of Company painters and his friends and would then reproduced these works in a periodical called "Behar Amateur Lithographic Scrap Book" which he printed and published himself. D'Oyly also published, among many other illustrated books, "Tom Raw the Griffin," 1828. Mr. Thomas Graham was a senior Member of the Board of Revenue in Calcutta and retired in 1808. It seems likely that O'Oyly and Graham met in Calcutta and that this is where the ball was held THE PROPERTY OF PAUL F. WALTER.

The drawings by Lady Amherst were copied from original drawings by George Chinnery and were also published by D'Oyly at his Lithographic Press.

Description: An inexperienced palanquin rider, Tom Raw hiring a palanquin on the Esplanade, Calcutta pencil, pen and brown ink and watercolour 6 5/8 x 8 7/8 in. (16.9 x 22.6 cm.) PROVENANCE with Spink, London. Anon. sale, Christie's, London, 25 May 1995, lot 212. LITERATURE Joachim K. Bautze, Interaction of Cultures: Indian and Western Paintings 1780-1910, The Ehrenfeld Collection, Alexandria, Virginia, 1998, pp. 272-273, no. 69, illustrated in colour. NOTES The present watercolour was intended as an illustration to the second canto of D'Oyly's satirical poem that describes the cadet, Tom Raw, as he made various blunders in Calcutta society. Here he is shown trying to climb into a palanquin on the esplanade in Calcutta with the gateway to Government House in the distance. D'Oyly's popular watercolours not only provide us with a humorous view of the English in India but also offer a documentation of customs, furniture, architecture and etiquette etc., which enrich our understanding of Anglo-Indian life.

Description: Chowringhee Road from No. XI Esplanade pen and brown and black ink, on two joined sheets 11 x 32.7/8 in. (28 x 83.5 cm.) NOTES A version of the present view of Chowringhee Road from No. XI Esplanade was reproduced as plate 26 in the posthumous publication of lithographs Views of Calcutta and its Environs, London, 1848. Thought to have been executed during D'Oyly's final years in Calcutta, prior to 1838, this aspect of the city is considered 'rare among all these views' as it is shown 'across the Dhurrumtollah Tank at the north-east corner of the Maidan' (J. Losty, Calcutta City of Palaces, London, 1990, p.115). The adjutant storks, depicted here, were the scavengers of Calcutta.

Description: A View of Barrackpore House, Calcutta oil on canvas 20 x 32 in. (50.8 x 81.3 cm.) NOTES Arriving in Calcutta in 1798, the new Governor-General Marquess Wellesley began an ambitious building programme, beginning with the great Circular Road and a new and grandiose Government House to be fit for the Governor-General of India; Lord Valentia commented: 'I wish India to be ruled from a palace, not a counting house, with the ideas of a Prince, not with those of a retail dealer in muslins and indigo'. 'It was not only Government House, Calcutta, that Wellesley sought to improve....... At Barrackpore, fourteen miles north of Calcutta, and a military cantonment, was a country retreat which had been purchased by the Government as a garden-house for the Commander-in-Chief, and which Lord Wellesley had appropriated in 1801. Hickey.....'Not content with having works of such magnitude and unbounded expense on foot, he at the same time commenced a second palace at Barrackpore, almost rivalling in magnificence the Calcutta one, which he intended as a country residence for future Governor-Generals as he could not expect it would be completed within his own reign. The grounds which of themselves were very pretty he laid out with extraordinary taste and elegance, upon different parts of which he erected a theatre, a riding-house, with probably the finest aviary and menagerie in the world....' Lord Valentia describes Barrackpore in 1803 : 'the situation of the house is much more pleasing than any thing I have yet seen. It is considerably elevated above the Hooghly river, on a very extended reach of which it stands: directly opposite is the Danish settlement of Serampore: on the sides are pagodas, villages and groves of lofty trees......the park is laid out in the English style; and the house, at present unfinished, is well adapted to the climate, having a beautiful verandah on every side, and the rooms being on a very ample scale.... The house described by Valentia... was a new, temporary bungalow erected by Wellesley, who pulled down the old one while his new palace was being built. The ambitious plan only got so far as the first storey before Wellesley was recalled. His temporary bungalow became the nucleus of Barrackpore House. When Wellesley left India it consisted of three large rooms opening into a verandah, which Sir George Barlow, who acted as Governor-General from 1805-1807, enlarged by converting each corner of the verandah into a small room.' (J.P. Losty, Calcutta, City of Palaces. A Survey of the City in the Days of the East India Company 1690-1858, London 1990, pp.80-81) Barrackpore House was further extended by Warren Hastings (Governor-General 1813-1823) adding a second storey in 1814-15 (for which see Sir James Baillie Fraser's aquatint 'A View of Barrackpore House' 1819, plate 10 from Fraser's Views of Calcutta and its Environs, London 1824-6), and the following lot by James Prinsep. The present oil shows the house just before Hastings' additions and probably dates to 1813, shortly after the artist's return to Calcutta in 1812 following his posting as Collector of Dacca from 1808.

NOTES D'Oyly arrived in India in 1797 and spent his first years in Calcutta In 1808 he was posted Collector of Dhaka. He later took up the position of Opium Agent in Patna which, owing to the ease of the job, enabled him to devote a great deal of time to his art. He became close friends with Chinnery who instructed D'Oyly in his drawing. It has been suggested that the two European figures in the foreground represent Sir Charles and Lady D'Oyly.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Oriental Ornithology. [Patna]: Behar Lithographic Press, [1828]-1829. Oblong 2o (276 x 430mm). Mounted hand-coloured lithographic title and 12 mounted hand-coloured lithographic plates after Smith and D'Oyly, all heightened with gum arabic. (Light spotting, lacking text.) Contemporary olive-green half morocco gilt over blind stamped patterned cloth, the spine divided into compartments with raised bands and latitudinal gilt fillets, gilt burgundy morocco lettering-piece (lower board slightly bowed, joints and head and tail of spine lightly rubbed, corners rubbed). Provenance : F.S.H. (inscription on front free endpaper). An interesting work, illustrated with Smith's depictions of birds, set against D'Oyly's evocative indian backgrounds: 'the colouring is extremely good and contains much detailed brush work, in most cases the black printing for the bird being the merest key' (Abbey). Born in India in 1781, Sir Charles D'Oyly was educated in England and returned to Calcutta aged 16, where he took up the position of assistant to the registrar of the court of appeal. He remained in India in the civil service of the East India Company for the next forty years, holding the posts, inter alia, of opium agent at Behar and commercial resident at Patna, before leaving for Europe in 1838 because of his failing health. Bishop Heber, who noted that D'Oyly had been a student of Chinnery's, described D'Oyly as 'the best gentleman artist I ever met with' (Abbey Travel 446), and it is likely that The Behar Amateur Lithographic Press was established to give D'Oyly's work a wider audience. Abbey reckons the life of the press at 'about two years only', during which it produced a small number of works illustrated by D'Oyly, including 3 relating to the zoology of the subcontinent: Indian Sports ([?1828]), D'Oyly and Smith's The Feathered Game of Hindostan (1828) and the present work. Of the 3 other copies of Oriental Ornithology cited by Abbey, only the Cambridge University Library copy contains the text, the Field Museum, Canada (cf. Zimmer) and McGill University, Montreal copies (cf. Wood) lacking it, as does the copy cited by Fine Bird Books (1990). Abbey Travel 453; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.143; Nissen IVB 881; Wood p.570; Zimmer p.595.
