Hindu Beauty

Hindu Beauty

A lithographic card, most likely done by an Indian artist and printed in Britain. Note how nicely the woman is foregrounded from a low angle, with a smaller temple in the background and a swirl of green that helps give life to the portrait.

Table Boy

Table Boy

From an unusual lithographic series, a marvelous rendition of a type still very active throughout the subcontinent and restaurants abroad.

Smoking Hookah

Smoking Hookah

A distinctly colored postcard, with the pinkish mud offsetting the green grass and white garb of the smoker. Note the little boy and half-hidden woman watching from the hut.
