FIW Painting by Benjamin West

Completed between 1764 and 1768 this picture is usually ascribed as General Johnson Saving a Wounded French Officer from the Tomahawk of a North American Indian. It is possible it depicts the siege of Niagara. The Light Infantry figures are worth a look. ..seem to have collars...maybe worth a visit to Derby Museum where it is housed.
