The Bikaner Rasikapriya is confirmed, after Karl Khandalavala, as a product of Mewar school. It is dated to 1670 CE on the basis of the similarity in colour and sensitivity with the Poona Bhagavata Purana. Dr Goetz's view of 1594 CE as the inspection date is rejected as an incorrect reading for 1694 CE. It is concluded that the inspection date was a temporary device for listing outside pictures, particularly in case of unknown artists, but can be authentic terminus ante quem in case of pictures free from dealer's marks or subsequent tamperings. A list is given of the pictures on which these conclusions are based.
