PROVENANCE; FROM THE ESTATE OF OLEG VLADIMIROVITCH POLUNIN (1914-1985). WAS A BOTANIST OF SOME NOTE WHO TAUGHT AT CHARTERHOUSE AND WAS WELL KNOWN FOR HIS WORKS ON FLORA,NOTABLY "FLOWERS OF THE HIMALYA" WRITTEN TOGETHER WITH ADAM STAINTON AND PUBLISHED BY THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS IN 1985. IT MAY OF COURSE HAVE BEEN DURING HIS TREKKING ACROSS THE HIMALAYAN REGIONS,RESEARCHING FOR HIS WORK THAT THIS PICTURE WAS ACQUIRED. POLUNIN'S TRAVELS TOOK HIM ACROSS A HUGE AREA OF ASIA,INCLUDING THE NEPAL/SIKKIM BORDER,NEPAL,UTTAR PRADESH,HIMACHAL PRADESH,JAMMU AND KASHMIR.

I ACQUIRED 14 PAINTINGS FROM THE POLUNIN ESTATE,THIS EXAMPLE BEING ONE OF THEM.

N.B NOTE; A MOST UNUSUAL DEPICTION FOR A TANJORE PAINTING,I HAVE NOT COME ACROSS THIS DEPICTION BEFORE.
