  • Robert Clive, 1st Baron Clive, first British Governor of Bengal (India)

A famous painting, Lord Clive meeting with Mir Jafar after the Battle of Plassey, by Francis Hayman (c. 1762). Hayman based much of the painting off of Indian miniatures, as he had never been to India and had no firsthand knowledge of Indian dress. The painting was displayed in Vauxhall soon after completion.
