Studies for European-Style Portrait Miniatures and a Damsel Arranging Flowers. Object Name: Illustrated single work; Date: ca. 1870; Geography: Made in India, probably Rajasthan; Medium: Ink and watercolor on paper; Dimensions: Page: 12 x 10 1/8 in. (30.5 x 25.7 cm); Classification: Codices; Credit Line: Bequest of William S. Lieberman, 2005 / This page comprises a series of individual portrait studies of European subjects in oval frames, likely preparations for small ivory brooches or pendants. The subjects are identified via inscriptions written in Persian. The central sketch depicts a lady in Indian dress and jewelry, though the treatment of her downcast, half-closed eye, delicate lips, and angular nose suggest a European or Anglo-Indian heritage. She arranges flowers in a vase on a European table.; Provenance: William S. Lieberman, New York (until d. 2005; bequeathed to MMA)
