William Daniell

WILLIAM DANIELL (1760-1837), his nephew, was fourteen when he accompanied his uncle to India. His own publications, engraved in aquatint, were Voyage to India; Zoography; Animated Nature; Views of London; Views of Bootan, a work prepared from his uncle's sketches; and a Voyage Round Great Britain, which occupied him several years. The British Institution made him an award of 100 for a " Battle of Trafalgar," and he was elected R.A. in 1822. He turned to panorama painting before his death, beginning in 1832 with Madras, the picture being enlivened by a representation of the Hindu mode of taming wild elephants.
