describe in your own words one painting from this chapter which suggests that the british were more powerful than indians.how does the artist depict this?
The aurial and dashwood families of calcutta painted by johann zafarr suggest that the british were the more powerful that indians. Indians were shown as submissive ,asinferiors,as serving their white masters whereas the british were shown as superiors,as imperious:they flaunt their clothes,standregally or sit arrogantly,and live a life of luxury. Indians are never at the centre of such paintings;they usually occupy a shadowy background.
i hope this helps..
