Hello. Could you specify where the second picture (the girls at the well) is taken from? I need to refer to this picture. Thank you.

Hi.
There are many versions of this painting. I'm not sure about the origin of the image in the post. But here is a link to another version of it, with information. It is entitled "A mounted Prince receiving water from ladies at a well", miniature from Murshidabad (c.1760)
Techniquegouache on paper
Location: London, Victoria & Albert Museum
