This is a Chinese export interpretation of an engraving by Thomas Gaugain (Anglo-French, 1756-1812) after a painting by William Redmore Bigg, published in London in 1792. According to Carl Crossman (see work cited above, p. 166), this painting "would have certianly seem to have come from the hand of Spoilum."
