Lot Essay

The present watercolour is a professional draughtman's perspective of an architectural design, in the Indo-Saracenic style favoured both in British India and in the Princely States in the late 19th-century. It has been suggested that the building might be the Takhtsingji Hospital in Bhownugger, designed by William Emerson.
