The offered lot and the two following lots are preparatory drawings for three portraits of the Maharajah of Indore executed by Bernard Boutet de Monvel between 1929 and 1934. While in Paris, in 1929, the young prince commissioned to the painter a portrait in western attire. After he had ascended to the throne of Indore in 1930, he then commissioned a new portrait in traditional attire. After Boutet de Monvel completed the second portrait, he decided to execute a last portrait of the Maharajah in profile.
