A lady smoking a hookah on a terrace by a lake

Scenes of leisure and courtly past times appear repeatedly in later Indian paintings. In this vibrant composition, a young lady, probably a princess, reclines on a terrace smoking a hookah (water-pipe), her gaze melancholically staring at a point beyond the frame. Behind her, set in a receding landscape, is a large pavilion by the water with bathers and forts dotting the hilltops.
