This is the original Gouache painting by 20th Century unidentified artist.

Gertrude Bell was an English writer, traveller, political officer, administrator in Arabia, and an archaeologist who explored, mapped, and became highly important to British imperial policy -mainly due to her extensive travels in Greater Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, and Arabia.

She played a major role in establishing and helping administer the modern state of Iraq utilizing her unique perspectives from her travels and relations with tribal leaders throughout the Middle East. This piece shows an instant when a brigand, who invaded Gertrude Bell's camp, stole her revolver and binoculars and was only prevented from killing her by the intervention of her servant.
