A private form of painting that emerged in Rajasthan, India during the 16th-17th centuries, miniature paintings were often kept in books or albums and served to illustrate the accompanying texts beautifully scripted in calligraphy. This remarkable example depicts a heated battle scene alive with clashing soldiers on horseback. The fusion of Indian, Islamic, Persian, and to some extent Chinese influence is seen in the text and mountainous landscape, with a characteristic high horizon and rocky outcroppings. Using pigments derived from minerals, vegetables, and precious stones, the painting is awash in brilliant color. It is matted behind glass in a gentle gilt frame.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
