        A bright, colorful portrait of a female player in her tennis whites. The architecture and figures in the background suggest she is in India. The sport was introduced there by British Army and Civilian officers in the 1880s and grew to become, and remains, a major sport in the country, producing numerous top players. They dominated the Davis Cup in the 1920s, around the time this image was painted.
