Oliver Forge & Brendan Lynch Ltd. of London are mounting a show entitled "Indian Painting 1590-1840" in Suite 1A at 9 East 82 Street. One of the highlights of this wonderful undertaking is a painting in the style of Rahim Deccani, an artist of the late 17th and early 18th century. The diminutive work—only 5½ x 8 5/8 inches—presents a regally attired lady who is sipping from a small cup while a prince pours wine from a gilt flask in a fragrant spring garden setting. They are flanked by a doe and a buck and a peacock and peahen, and above are three large naturalistic birds.
