Visual Description : In this painting Jit Singh is seated in a pavilion overlooking the river Ravi. Opposite him is his wife Fani Sarada. In attendance are splendidly attired maid-servants, one holding a fly whisk of peacock feathers, another a huqqa with a long trailing stem, and the third a gold tray with betel leaves. The fourth dressed in yellow clothes is waving a chauri of yak's tail over the Rani's head. In front a fountain is bubbling and at its sides are poppies growing parterres. A pair of ducks in playful mood interposed between the fountan and the pavilion conveys feelings of love, and creates a mood which pervades the atmosphere.
