Gift of Mrs. A. Dean Perry 1962.279.100.b
In the time since their first meeting, the gardener has become an ascetic.
Among the illustrations in the Tales of a Parrot, this painting is one of the most representative of local Indian styles, with very few Persian features. Trees stand out as bold shapes, and figures are arranged in a single register and have angular and expressive gestures. The female figures are closely related to pre-Mughal types, shown always in profile and wearing garments that stand stiffly and sharply out before them.
