Description: Wife of Farrukh Beg lamenting in the graveyard. The upper portion of the picture is very like the Bombay Lor Chanda group in the striped domes against a band of tile, the pink ground with curving horizon being behind the pavilion and gold sky with arabesques of clouds. The damaged figure of the merchant is decidedly Mughal in aspect, though attendants more Lor Chanda. Female figures on other hand are close to Chaura-panchasika group. Waving streaks of clouds at top are Western Indian conventions. In contrast, bottom part of picture strikingly Mughal in quality, particularly the realistic portrayal of grief in the face of the woman, the birds, and the pink mound. Nevertheless, traces of indigenous styles still survive in streaky decorations of lady's paijamah and the angular projections of the tasselled dupatta -- Folio 10 verso.
