    Description
    This watercolour was painted by an unknown artist from an engraving featured in James Bruce's account of his journeys in North Africa tracing the Blue Nile from 1768 to 1773.

    The original image by Bruce was later reproduced as an engraving in his publication ‘Travels to discover the source of the Nile, in the years 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772, and 1773’, which was eventually published in five lavishly illustrated volumes in 1790.
