Askand Plant India, Company School c. 19th century Opaque watercolor heightened with gold on paper 18 1/2 x 12 1/2 in. (47 x 31.8 cm.)
This painting is a wonderful example of the work that was produced during the Company Period. The style blended traditional Indian painting with Western influence to appeal to European sensibilities, typically commissioned by patrons who worked for the various East India companies from the early 18th to 19th centuries. The delicate flowers and highly detailed leaves of this Askand Plant were likely created for Europeans to know of the bountiful beauties that the natural world of India retains.
