Folio from a ragamala series: Ramkali Ragini. Jaipur, circa 1820. Opaque watercolour with gold on wasli. 17 x 13cmOn the back of this refined painting is a hand-written English description correctly naming the ragini although the remainder of the text is either mistaken or made up, as it should describe the scene in which an errant male returns after spending the night with a lover, then tries to work his way back into the affections of his spouse.
