Lake & House On A Serene Moonlit Night, 1944 Painting

moonlit art india

A scene of a lake and house on a serene moonlit night, a 1944 British India painting. This is an oil painting framed in glass with a metal sheet tacked on the back. Painted by an amateur 16-year-old Indian student with the help of her British art tutor. That shows a beautiful and serene scene of a lake and a house on a moonlit night.

The artwork is said to have been done in an art class at a British-run school in Trivandrum (now Thiruvananthapuram) in 1949.  There were probably many schools that had art classes run by British and European teachers. This was during the British India era which continued even after 1947 till perhaps the 1950s. Especially in the regions of Madras, Bombay, and Calcutta Presidencies. And Princely States that had British control over them, such as Travancore and Mysore.
