Watercolor Landscape Painting British India Secunderabad, 1930
A 1930 watercolor painting of the Secunderabad landscape during the British India era. This watercolor was removed from its broken frame and depicts a painting probably by an amateur artist. Titled “Secunderabad” near the left edge at the bottom, along with the artist’s monogram “GA”.
This painting may have been done by a British soldier based in Secunderabad. Secunderabad a twin city of Hyderbad, was a British military cantonment, primarily to safeguard the Nizam and his territories. This painting appears to have been done on the outskirts of Secunderabad, by a British soldier, where the landscape looks rugged.
