Catalogue Note

An elegant stallion wearing a saddle and a feathered head ornament pulls a tall-wheeled European-style cabriolet open carriage in a dignified walk.  His pensive driver stares distractedly alongside perhaps waiting for a customer.   This type of carriage was particularly in favor at Kotah and other Rajasthani courts during the mid-Nineteenth Century.

The present superbly rendered drawing is Company School in both style and subject.  The drawing retains numerous pentimenti or corrections, visible in the position of the horses legs and carriage details with additional tinges of white bodycolor.
