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

On the back of the painting is a hand-written English description which typically appears to be a flight of fancy, or perhaps the writer was misled. The iconography for this ragini differs enormously, but often has a lady playing a vina.
