Description: The picture has no remaining marginal attribution but is surely the work of Basawan, whose emphasis on the painterly rather than the linear is brought out admirably in the treatment of the foliage of the large tree to the right, the leaves of which are painted with a soft and gentle brush and to an even greater extent in the feathery foliage of the two trees to the left. The entire picture is of a dark and glowing tonality, the artist having most successfully captured the quality of light in a dense forest. This painting occurs in the manuscript between Folio 26v by Basawan, and Folio 33v, which is yet another painting with a marginal attribution to Basawan -- Folio 35 recto.
