Indian painting, Chinese-style interior


Indian painting of a woman in a Chinese-decorated room, by an unknown artist from Surat (Gujarat) (c. 1740)
The pale-skinned, high-class woman lieing down is listening to her servant playing a lute. Sprawled on the floor beside the women is a young African pageboy, presumably a slave bought from east Africa.
