The Classification and Chronology of Rajput Painting and the Bikaner MINIATURES

Title:The Classification and Chronology of Rajput Painting and the Bikaner MINIATURES
Author:Goetz, Hermann
Enumeration:Vol. 5 Issue no. 1, p. 17-21
Abstract:These are two letters to the editor -- the first by Dr H. Goetz who reiterates his theory of a Rajput painting school of the early 16th century, and the other by Karl Khandalavala who refutes the theory. Goetz counters the criticisms of Khandalavala and W.G. Archer, and argues that the history of Rajput painting should not be dissociated from political events. Bundelkhand and Bikaner flourished between circa 1530-1630 and 1573-1620 respectively, and these phases saw cultural activity in Rajasthan, while Mewar's devastation between 1567-1614 and 1678-83 does not suggest any art tradition in these periods. On the other hand, Kandalavala emphasizes the importance of dated examples in the study of changing styles and chronology of Rajput painting.
