This miniature painting is part of the Small Clive Album of Indian miniatures which is thought to have been given by Shuja ud-Daula, the Nawab of Avadh, to Lord Clive during his last visit to India in 1765-67. It contains 62 leaves on which are Mughal miniature paintings, drawing and flower studies on both sides. The binding is covered with an Indian brocade silk that may have been cut from lengths brought home by the 2nd Lord Clive, who served as Governor of Madras, 1799 to 1803. The album was sold from Powis Castle at Sotheby's sale, 16 to 18 January 1956, lot 332A.

physical_description
The painting, in opaque watercolour on paper, is of an orange daisy-like flowering plant with two blooms and a bud against a plain buff background. The modelling of the petals is done with red brushwork of fine lines with some cross-hatching. The anthers of the petals are picked out in blue. The leaves are treated in a similar manner to the petals with the modelling consisting of darker green fine lines. The painting is framed with plain light brownish, buff-coloured strips of paper with black outlines. The border is of a lighter off -white ivory colour than the ground of the painting and is edged in strips of grey-blue paper with black outlining. A former beige paper gutter is evident on the right hand side mostly obscured by the beige strip of woven textile which has been added as a gutter for the present album binding.
