The Queen of Candy

Item Description: 

In contrast to either The Fruit Seller or The Hindoo Female, the subject of The Queen of Candy has an official name and title. She is represented as an individual rather than as a generic type. Daniell’s slippage between types and individuals reflects the less prescribed nature of the relationships between the British and the Indians prior to the early nineteenth century, when an intolerance for hybridity became the norm.
