An image of Golden Water (Princess Parisade). Rossetti, Dante Gabriel (British, 1828-1882). Bodycolour on paper, laid on fine linen on a stretcher, height 365 mm, width 187 mm, 1858. Notes: The subject is taken from the story in the 'Arabian Nights' of the two sisters who were jealous of their younger sister, Princess Parisade, depicted here carrying the black barrel containing the golden water.
