This image is a hand-coloured aquatint portrait of Yagan by George Cruikshank. A black and white print of this portrait appeared in the frontispiece of Robert Dale's 1834 booklet Descriptive account of the panoramic view &c. of King George's Sound and the adjacent country.

A digital image of the portrait is available from the National Library of Australia (NLA) website. The NLA image contains spurious indexing information along the bottom; this digital image is a cropped version that eliminates this. The original image also has a strong yellow tint; this image has been de-yellowed.

The original image is available at Image:Yagan original.jpg, and a closely cropped version of this de-yellowed image is available at Image:Yagan cropped.jpg.
