This fine pair of portraits shows a very delicate and accomplished hand of the artist. The portraits show two courtesans, one playing a primitive version of an oud or sitar, the other holding a mirror and putting on a maang tikka (traditional head jewelry worn by women at special occasions.

The pair have been presented in a single, glazed frame with a gilt inner window and a layered blue and yellow mount. The paintings are unsigned.

On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including minor discolouration. The frame is in fine condition.
