Comments
Pen and ink, black & watercolor drawing, showing coastal scene with group of Europeans and African woman (lower right), and European (slaving?) vessels anchored offshore. The NMM identifies the artist as S. Hutchinson, dates the drawing to ca. 1793, and titles it "Slave Traffic." Compare the scene in the lower right-hand corner of this image with the illustration "un Anglais de la Barbade vend sa maitresse" (image H005 on this website).
