Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism

A monochromatic gouache featuring two rows of laboratory equipment on counters and white men in suits. One figure in the foreground sits on a stool and uses a microscope while two figures nearby converse over a counter. Three figures populate the background and are engaged in various activities; one turns to look at the conversing subjects, another stands at the end of the left counter stirring a beaker, and a final in the background is on the left edge of the scene.
