An infinite sky in subdued shades can be seen with a stretch of water in the foreground which reflects the skyline on its surface. Lush green trees form a layered background with architectural elements in white chromes. The central focus is the Government House in Barrackpur, represented as a large white bungalow with the river flowing in front.
Pillared bungalows are reflected in calm waters subtly drawing interest to the left side of the painting, A flag of the Empire stands tall towards the extreme left of the painting, being witness to the sailing boats in the foreground. The tranquil waters show several individuals in their Indian attire, engaged in varied activities atop small boats.
Barrackpore in west Bengal, is the oldest cantonment in India built in 1772. The Government House and the estate were built to provide the Viceroy with a suburban residence outside Calcutta. Barrackpur was also witness to several acts of rebellion against the British in the 19th century. This painting was presented to the Viceroy’s House, New Delhi by Lord and Lady Willingdon.
