Some Pre-Akbari Examples of Rajasthani Illustrations

Title:Some Pre-Akbari Examples of Rajasthani Illustrations
Author:Kishan, Rai Anand
Enumeration:Vol. 11 Issue no. 2; March 1958, p. 18-21
Abstract:Through the study of particular paintings, the author believes that the Rajasthani school began before Akbar's period and owed its formation to the Sultanate courts of the pre-Akbar era. The Mrigavati illustrations, the Awadhi romance, and an undated illustration from a Sangrahani Sutra all show drapery, colour schemes, and architectural elements of pre-Akbar times. In fact, the facial features show affinity with the Apabhramsa tradition, while the floral designs appear uniquely Persian.
