DescriptionThis work resembles a portrait of the young prince by Deen Dayal (1844-1905) from the early 1890s. It is likely a later enlargement of an earlier photograph that was then painted. Flaking paint in the lower left reveals a photographic image that does not match with the studio setting in the painted version, indicating the fabricated nature of the background setting.
