On display in Derby

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. Andrew Bamford mentioned it is on display in Derby at the Pickford House Museum
Ralph Mitchard's photo.
