This painting relates to a series of four decorative canvases painted in 1762 by Francis Hayman for the Rotunda of Vauxhall Gardens. The defeat in 1757 of the Nawab of Bengal and his French Allies by the British at the Battle of Plassey confirmed the dominance of the British East India Company in South Asia for the next century.
