The Outram Statue, Calcutta

View through Europeana Collections
Photograph by W. G. Stretton taken in the 1870s, part of the Dunlop Smith Collection: Sir Charles Aitchison Album of Views in India and Burma. A view of John Henry Foley's statue of Sir James Outram which was considered one of his best works. Foley also produced statues of Lords Hardinge and Canning, erected at other sites in Calcutta. Sir James Outram (1803-1863) was a Political Officer and General who gained a reputation for bravery at the siege of Lucknow during the Indian Uprising of 1857. His nickname was 'The Bayard of India', a reference to the French soldier Pierre Terrail, Seigneur de Bayard (1473-1524), celebrated for his feats of valour in the face of terrible odds and called le chevalier sans peur et sans reproche, the 'knight without fear and without reproach'.
