General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: Bikaner

Title:General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: Bikaner
Author:Goetz, Hermann
Enumeration:Vol. 11 Issue no. 2; March 1958, p. 62-64
Abstract:Bikaner paintings after Rai Singh were executed either by Rajput masters who had lost their employment because of the advance of Mughal imperial art and had taken refuge at the Bikaner court, or by Mughal masters. The revival of a genuine Bikaner school occurred under Anup Singhji. While the early 18th-century paintings were almost completely Mughal, the 2nd quarter of the century saw the first signs of a new Rajput style, which later blossomed in the reign of Bakhat Singh Rathor of Nagaur. After him, the school survived at various places; at Bikaner, it is evident in the decoration of Phul Mahal, the doors of Chandra Mahal, some ragamalas, and the wall panels of Anup Mahal.
