    Major James Nathaniel Rind.
    Private UK collection.

    Major James Nathaniel Rind (d. 1813) was in India from 1778 to 1804, serving in both the Bengal Marines and the 18th Native Infantry, was stationed in Calcutta between 1785 and 1789, taking part in a survey of India, and retired to Calcutta with the rank of Brigade Major in 1801. He commissioned a large collection of botanical studies (though he also owned the bizarre painting of the famous Sheep Eater, a fakir from Farrukhabad). For a study of a Eurasian wigeon from his collection, see Sotheby's, Arts of the Islamic World, 25th October 2017, lot 97. For examples of botanical studies collected by him, see the same sale, lot 96; and S. C.

Other examples appeared at auction: see Sotheby's, Oriental Manuscripts and Miniatures, 22nd October 1993, lot 227; The Indian Sale, 8th May 1997, lot 196.
