Hemendranath Mazumdar was one of the founders of the Indian Art Academy that pursued naturalism and was a departure from the till then popular Bengal School. A number of his paintings are dreamy in mood and have women in semi-transparent draperies with more than a suggestion of the erotic. 

This painting (possibly ”Rose or Thorn”) suggests dress styles of the 1920s and 1930s including the translucency of the sari and of course the armband.
