This painting shows “Dumra” as Robin requested, in a rising South West monsoon, having just cast off her tugs.
Robin’s comment upon seeing this painting for the first time “A very good painting except not enough dead cows in the harbour” – RKJ
In the background we see many sights familiar at the time, some still in place, the massive Gateway of India, the Taj Mahal Hotel, local craft & 2 B.I. “I” class freighters.
It even shows the cabin window were Robin sweated out his early voyages, alas, only one dead cow shown in the harbour!
Bombay has reverted to its original name, Mumbai.
