This painting is executed in a style peculiar to the Punjab of the mid-19th century and generally associated with Sikh painting. The prince depicted here is probably a dogra, and therefore Hindu, and not a Sikh. See a portrait of Maharaja Gulab Singh and his son Ranbir Singh, executed in Lahore around 1846-47 (Victoria and Albert Museum, London, IS.13-1956).

A painting of lovers parting, Punjab, perhaps Lahore, India, circa 1840-60Provenance
