ink and watercolour, h 205mm × w 340mm More details

This drawing bears rare visual witness to the atrocities committed by the troops under Dutch command during the Java War (1825-1830). Probably drawn by a Dutch officer, the sketch depicts a Javanese village with a Dutch fort. Visible on pikes in the foreground are eight ‘severed heads of mutineers,’ as described in the caption.
