Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a work of art that draws from what is best in Indian painting traditions. The composition renders the atmosphere of daydream, peace and sensuality. In the background of the presented scene appears a fabulous dreamlike landscape. The artist using a wide range of colours precisely and with great care showed even the smallest details of composition, especially flowers and garments.

History of the Object
It is an example of the Deccani school of painting, that, similar to the Mughal school, draws a lot from Islamic art traditions. On one side it stands out stylistically, on the other hand it shows strong influences of Persian miniature painting. Also the South-Indian and European influences are visible.
