Lucknow watercolours of animals usually depict them standing on shrubland. A further bird standing on similar grass and attributed to Lucknow, second half of the eighteenth century, was sold in these rooms, 10 July 1968, lot 154. This powerful portrait of an egret is unusual for its light blue background, which might be the result of a European influence, although it is undoubtedly original to the painting.
