The Nawab was bored with sitting for portraits and therefore arranged for Ozias Humphry and Charles Smith to paint him jointly on the 19th April 1786. The Nawab sat for the two artists for forty minutes 'without any apparent impatience'. They depicted him wearing a white muslin jama with a gold and brown stripped cummerbund and a scarlet turban, as shown in this miniature.
Another version of this composition was sold at Sotheby's, London, 16 April 2018, lot 48.
