Our painting has Deccani characteristics, probably painted at or near Hyderabad, as noted in the highly stylized trees, nim qalam (half-painted) manner as well as the extremely fine quality of the faces of the yogis.
Possibly attributable to the artist Masud - a Mughal artist active in the mid-Eighteenth Century. This attribution is based upon another colored drawing of ascetics almost certainly by the same hand in the Victoria and Albert Museum London which is attributed there to Masud (V&A IM.289-1913).
An old label, affixed to the verso of the painting, is inscribed in Dutch in an early Nineteenth Century hand.
