Bungalow of a British army officer and his wife stationed at Bhuj (Cutch).
Watercolour of the bungalow of the Bombay Army officer, Thomas Chase Parr and his wife Harriet at Bhuj in Kutch, Gujarat, by an anonymous artist working in the Western India/Cutch style, c. 1851. Inscribed on front in ink by Harriet Parr: 'Our House Bhooj, 1851.'
Bhuj was the capital of the former princely state of Kutch, located in the Western part of Gujarat. It is an old walled town full of palaces, pavilions and highly decorated Hindu temples. The bungalow seen in this drawing has a two-storeyed addition with an elaborately decorated balcony on one side. Hollyhocks and sunflowers thrive in the garden.
