'The Death of Edward Colston', painted by Richard Jeffreys in about 1844. Edward Colston was a Bristol-born merchant who became very wealthy through trade, including the transatlantic slave trade. At first glance this painting shows the death of an old man at home in bed surrounded by loved ones. Perhaps a peaceful and 'good' way to die? This man was in part responsible for the deaths of many enslaved Africans. Does this make us rethink how we feel about his own death?
