Portrait of a Prince

Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Wearing a pink garment, the prince sits in a characteristic position on a striped carpet against a bolster, while holding a little white flower in his left hand. Behind him stands an attendant with a flywhisk. The pungent yellow background was favored by early Pahari artists, and the idealization notwithstanding, the two figures are rendered in exquisite detail worthy of a master artist.
