The use of shading composed of linear strokes to model the form derives from Mughal practice and was adopted at several of the Rajasthan courts early in the 18th century. The silhouetting of the profile is also found in Kota paintings of that period. However, the exaggerated curved shape of the eye as well as summary treatment of the pillow and trays with intoxicants in the foreground make a date around the turn of the 19th century more likely.
