Catalogue Note

Using the traditional Mughal framing device of the jharoka window, this portrait combines elements of Jaipur and Lucknow painting, the Jaipur facial features and poses are accompanied by a rather Persianate treatment of the textiles. 'Towards the end of the eighteenth century, Lucknow, the capital of Oudh, exerted a paramount influence, its galaxy of court and bazaar artists producing a variety of styles.' (Archer, W.G., Indian Miniatures, London 1960, pl.60).
