Some Rajasthani Portraits

Title:Some Rajasthani Portraits
Author:Gangoly, O.C.
Enumeration:Vol.11 Issue no. 2; March 1958, p. 22-24
Abstract:The art of portrait painting in Rajasthan was a well established tradition prior to the Indo-Persian and Mughal schools. In particular, the art of large-scale mural portraits, a tradition of the Rashtrakutas, was very popular in Rajasthan and continued even after the album-sized portraits of the Mughal style were introduced. Indeed as late as the mid-19th century, a mural portrait of Raja Sardar Singhji of Bikaner adorned Anup Mahal Chowk. These Rajasthani portraits often consisted of a group of figures and possessed a romance and liveliness that the Mughal portraits lacked.
