Object description

image: An interior of the exotically decorated Music Room in the Brighton Pavilion. The room has been converted into a hospital ward and is lined with metal framed beds. All the wounded are Indian soldiers in turbans. Some sit by their beds in their overcoats looking out of the window to the right of the composition. Others lie in their beds beneath their blankets. There is a chandelier hanging in the centre of the painting and beyond this what appear to be Far-Eastern style works of art on the far wall.
