Collection Description

The collection comprises 477 watercolour drawings commissioned by William Farquhar, the first Resident and Commandant of Singapore (1819-1823), during his prior tenure as Resident of Melaka. These natural history drawings depict the flora and fauna of the Malay Peninsula, most likely accomplished by local Chinese artists, with inscriptions identifying the species by their English and Malay names. Farquhar brought this set along with him when he left Singapore, and subsequently donated it to the Royal Asiatic Society in London in 1827. In 1993, it was put up for auction and purchased by Mr G.K. Goh, who donated the entire collection to the National Museum of Singapore.

Product Description

Qua presents the Display Hanging/ Stand (large) with 4 artworks: Slow Loris, Dark-handed Gibbon, Black-napped Oriole, and Blue-winged Pitta from the William Farquhar collection. It serves as an organiser for small trinkets and is the perfect Singapore corporate gift and souvenir for overseas visitors and guests.
