This is a Drawing. It was created by Unknown. It is dated 18th century and we acquired it in 1962. Its medium is pen and black ink with watercolor and gold on paper, mounted. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

In this drawing, the interweaving of forms helps create pictorial density, particularly in the carpet and floor. This drawing likely references an older work, shedding light on the copying and reproduction tradition within miniature painting.

It is credited Gift of Ely Jacques Kahn.

31.6 x 20.6 cm (12 7/16 x 8 1/8 in.)
