A princess viewing a painitng
Mughal, circa 1630
Opaque watercolor and gold on paper; seated on a golden European chair and purple bolster, the maiden views a miniature painting of another female figure. Her hair is draped with a gilt-hemmed scarf that falls across her bare breasts and down over her green churidar, and adorned with strands of pearls. Her face is sensitively drawn with a benign expression.
