[Williams, John] d 1905 :[Maori bargaining with a Pakeha. 1845 or 1846?]
1845 - 1847
Williams, John, -1905?; Bridge, Cyprian, 1807-1885

A European male, thought to be Joel Samuel Polack, facing three Maori men, one gesturing with two large woven kits of potatoes at his feet, another with potatoes on his back, the third holding a tethered pig. In the background is a curved bay, probably Kororareka (Russell) with tents and buildings visible and a canoe pulled up on the shore.

Almost identical to, and possibly copied from a sketch by Cyprian Bridge entitled Maoris bartering pigs and potatoes ca 1845, (neg 52118 1/2) held in a private collection.
