Prize Agents extracting treasure

Prize Agents extracting treasure. Coloured lithograph from The Campaign in India 1857-58 from drawings made during the eventful period of the Great Mutiny, illustrating the military operations before Delhi and its neighbourhood'. A series of 26 coloured lithographs by W Simpson, E Walker and others, after G F Atkinson, published by Day andSon, 1857-1858. Associated with the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859). Despite strict orders against individual looting, many of Delhi?s treasures filled the pockets of the troops who captured the city in September 1857. The loot was supposed to have been handed over to official prize agents who would then auction it and divide the proceeds. As this print depicts, the agents and their soldiers had few scruples when it came to how they gathered the loot. Contemporaries estimated the auctioned Delhi treasure to be worth over half a million pounds. Date: 1858
