The black-and-white coloration and shading of her face indicate that this painting was made to look like a colored etching.
A woman looks sharply, almost surreptitiously, to one side as she pours wine from a red glass bottle. She has long and curly tresses and a green beret inspired by European styles, though she wears Indian jewelry. Images loosely based on prints that made their way to India from Europe were in vogue in Rajasthan during the 18th century.
