[Angas, George French] 1822-1886 :Tamihana Te Rauparaha [1852]
Angas, George French, 1822-1886; Donne, Thomas Edward, 1860-1945

Full-length portrait of Tamihana or Thompson, son of Te Rauparaha, dressed in a formal English suit and leaning against a half-pillar or desk, a book, probably a Bible, under his left hand.

Unsigned but titled by artist.

Tamihana is described elsewhere by Angas as 'a civilized and Christianised New Zealand chief'. He was educated at the Church Mission School at Waimate and at St John's College, Tamaki, becoming the first Maori catechist and lay preacher of the Church of England.

Tamihana travelled to London with Archdeacon William Williams, arriving in April 1851. He was in London until July 1852. Angas was also in London in 1852.
