Leonard Perkins

 

Captain of the Maroons

 

I have asked numerous people (mostly soldiers) about these pictures, and the conclusion is as follows.

·       The color picture is the original

·       The black and white was edited and or repainted to add the gun…..why is unknown at this time

·       Of the black and white picture:- Holding a gun in this position is unnatural, clumsy, awkward and uncomfortable. This would be a war pose or stance

·       Of the Color Picture :-Holding a spear in this position is very natural, normal and likely.

Description:

Leonard Parkinson, Captain of the Maroons 

The monochrome engraving of Parkinson was used as a illustration to Bryan Edwards Proceedings of the Governor and Assembly of Jamaica (1796). Abraham Raimbach, engraver

The coloured drawing (Bristol Museums) shows Parkinson in a similar pose, this time carrying a spear, his musculature more exaggerated and his hair bushier.
