London, Robert Bowyer for Thomas Daniell, 1798

This is the Chaturbhuja Vishnu temple in the village of Deo in western Bihar located in Eastern India near Bengal. It was originally built in the 10th century and consecrated to the god Surya. Later it was converted into a Vishnu temple in the 15th century.

Thomas Daniell (1749–1840) and his nephew William Daniell (1769–1837) travelled extensively in India between 1786 and 1793. On their return to Britain they produced many paintings, drawings and prints based on the sketches they had made while travelling. The 144 aquatint prints, collectively known as Oriental Scenery, represent the single largest and most impressive project by English artists to depict Indian architecture and landscape.

Original hand-coloured aquatint engraving on Whatman wove paper for Oriental Scenery, sheet size 73 x 54.5 cm, image size 45 x 60 cm. Colours bright and fresh. Fine condition.
