Mughal India, Murshidabad, 1822
£15,000

A very attractive and finely executed Mughal painting, likely from the Murshidabad region. The painting displays women dressed in their fine brocade and embroidered gowns, edged in gold with pearl jewellery, enjoying music and receiving the company of a visiting lady to their terrace. One particularly attractive detain of this painting is the night-time setting and the views of the sparkling stars and crescent moon that adorn the vast sky under which the scene is set.
