Lady with Attendants

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description A woman sits while two attendants look after her needs. The colorful dresses of the attendants stand in contrast to the nudity of the central figure. A short inscription in Takri script at the top of the red border reads, "foot ornament 1." This painting might have been the first in a sequence depicting the stages of dressing a beauty, beginning with her foot and ending with her head.
