A Watercolor by Selina Caroline Shakespear Lowis

This watercolor is by my maternal great, great grandmother, Selina "Lena" Caroline Shakespear Lowis who wrote and illustrated the book, Familiar Indian Flowers . She painted the above watercolor while she and  my great great grandfather, Lieutenant Colonel Ninian Lowis, were living in India. He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Bental Staff Corps during the Indian Mutiny.
