A Rebel Negroe Arm'd, by Bartolozzi
"A Rebel Negroe Arm'd and on his guard," 1794 engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, after a watercolor by J.G. Stedman, for Stedman's Narrative of a Five Years Expedition Against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam (1796). This hand-tinted version comes from Bakker et al's Geschiedenis Van Suriname.

Stedman engaged a number of leading artists for his monumental work on the maroon war of Surinam, among them Bartolozzi and William Blake.
