Miniature entitled '13 Factories in Canton', which is executed in watercolour. The rectangular image - not really a miniature in the normal sense - depicts the foreign 'factory' buildings forming the core of the restricted European area on the bank of the Pearl River in Canton, with Chinese vessels lying off.
