Folio from a ragamala series: Bairadi Ragini. Jaipur, circa 1820. Opaque watercolour with gold on wasli. 16.8 x 13cm

According to Klaus Ebeling ('Ragamala Painting' 1973, fig.183) this iconography - with a bedchamber in front of which a standing couple caress - is particular to the 19th century Jaipur ragamala tradition. It is also known as Virari Ragini, with the painting's English inscription (see below image) refering to it as 'Virari Ragini'.
