It was through her studies in Paris that she met Rabindranath Tagore. He gifted the present lot in 1935 in Lahore. The work passed to Dr Yogesh Madan who in the 1950s emigrated to England and finally settled in Salford, Manchester where he worked as a dedicated and much loved General Practitioner for thirty years. Dr Madan gifted the painting to his beloved daughter Mrs Ursula Jones on the occasion of her 21st birthday.
