    accompanying her on foot. Her head is turned in three quarter profile which furthermore directs the viewer’s eye towards
    an Indian man on the other side. Dressed in an ochre jaina and crimson pagdi, he is portrayed lying on one of the rocks

    green and brown, this landscape reveals an impeccable play of refined brushstrokes. Amidst the calmness, two dogs in the

    This painting represents a scenic landscape extending into distant background with swirling clouds. Streaks of sunlight fall effectively on the clouds which seem to be radiant in their appearance. Craggy mountains in deep umber brown are painted across the horizontal frame of this composition.

    Two individuals, dressed in western clothes can be seen in the foreground. The entire canvas is divided by a serene sea occupying the central ground in conventional academic style. Vegetal motifs and a tree are painted on one side of this expansive painting, directing the viewer’s eye to the detailed landscape in the background.

    This painting is attributed to A.W. Devis in the 1931 catalogue. However some scholars have argued that it could be by other artists, based on stylistic conventions. Arthur William Devis was born in 1762 in London as the nineteenth child of the artist Arthur Devis and his wife Elizabeth Faulkner. He was renowned for his skill as a British painter of history paintings and portraits. Appointed as draughtsman by the East India Company in 1783, under Captain Henry Wilson, he made Bengal his workplace in India. He painted portraits and historical subjects, sixty-five of which he exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London during 1779-1821.
