Rajah Starting On A Hat by Edwin Lord Weeks. This painting depicts preparations for a hunting expedition at a palace in Ajmer, Rajasthan. Likely dating from the artist’s 1892-93 trip to the country, he described the palace façade in his published accounts as "completely covered by tiers of projecting windows . . . wonderfully light and airy in effect." The striking period frame is not original to the painting, but suggests the "Orientalist"-style setting that Weeks favored for his work.
