One of India’s premier publishers, Niyogi Books has presented an exquisite selection of the Daniells’ work in India in its latest publication titled Daniells’ India: Views from the Eighteenth Century, which was released by Shri Jawhar Sircar, Chief Executive Officer, Prasar Bharati at the India International Centre in New Delhi on 13th May, 2013.

With the publication of the book, the works of Thomas and William Daniell, which were hitherto lying in the confines of the National Archives of India have become easily accessible to public.
Thomas Daniell was thirty-six years old when he and his nephew William, barely sixteen, sailed out from Gravesend in April 1785 and headed for the East. They arrived in Calcutta via China the next year. The Daniells travelled across India, painting Oriental Scenery wherever they went. Their views were widely appreciated and are representative of that fascinating period.The National Archives of India, the repository of the non-current records of the Government of India is holding them in trust for the use of administrators and scholars.
