This is the original Gouache painting by James E McConnell.

Hostile warriors from King Kamrasi's tribe poise to strike the British explorer Samuel Baker as he crosses a river alone in his desperate attempt to find a second source for the River Nile.

Despite both he and his wife coming close to death by fever he did discover the lake he named Lake Albert. Note light glue residue above lead warrior's head. This is reflected in the price.
