Drawing. Two lovers listening to music played by women. Drawn on paper. Nala and Damayanti (?).

18th century
Pahari Style (Pahari School)

This term refers to paintings created in the small Rajput courts of the Punjab Hills. While the Pahari region was occupied from the 7th century onwards, with dated architectural monuments and temples, there is no evidence of painting until the mid-16th century. The painting tradition really flourished from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
