An unusual and fine Indian miniature on ivory, c. 1880. Finely painted as a beautiful girl, wearing a veil over her naked body, lifting it to reveal her breast. She stands before a red curtain, and holds a fan in her left hand, whilst wearing fine jewellery.
Mounted behind glass, within an ornately carved ebony easel frame.
