Princess admiring her own image
Opaque watercolor and gold on paper, Kangra, circa 1820
Seated on an open terrace wrapped in a transparent shawl and smoking a porcelain and gold hookah she stares at the mirror held by an attendant and another works a fly whisk from behind, and a third looks on from the edge of the composition. Black and gilt floral margins and pink border.
