General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: Jaipur

Title:General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: Jaipur
Author:Goetz, Hermann
Enumeration:Vol. 11 Issue no. 2; March 1958, p. 53-59
Abstract:The writer ascribes various miniatures of the Jaipur school to different phases of stylistic development. The first phase (1570-1625) showed characteristics of the Indo-Muslim painting of Malwa. In the second phase, the reign of Raja Jai Singh I (1625-67), contemporary Mughal elements were introduced, while conserving the Rajput tradition. Between 1667 and c. 1750, the Mughal influence was at its strongest, so much so that real works of Jaipur have been discarded as Mughal creations. In the years c. 1750-68, the Mughal influence gave way to a phase of pure Rajput art. The last grand phase of the Jaipur school began in the reign of Sawai Partap Singh II (1778-1803) and continued into the early years of Sawai Ram Singh (1835-80). The following years upto 1880, marked the final phase of stereotyped mass production.
