- Curator's comments
- The architectural backdrop of 1940,0713,0.28, including the section inlaid with coloured marble, suggests a provenance in the Deccan not far removed from Rajasthan. The same can be applied to the other paintings in this series.
The background of this work is very similar to 1940,0713,0.30, where a palace can be seen in the distance, behind the hill used as a backdrop for the main figures.
