Portraits of Ibrahim Adil Shah II

Title:Portraits of Ibrahim Adil Shah II
Author:Chandra, Moti
Enumeration:Vol. 5 Issue no. 1, p. 22-28
Abstract:Ibrahim, ruler of Bijapur and composer of the Kitab-i-Nauras, like his contemporary Akbar in the north, strove hard to achieve a distinctive Deccani culture. Under his patronage the Bijapur school of painting reached its zenith. Two phases in this school are identified during the time of Ibrahim: 1590-1605 which exhibits a mixture of Persian, European, and indigenous styles, and 1605-27 which shows Mughal influence. Several portraits of Ibrahim are analyzed, along with other paintings, to trace the evolution of the Bijapur school. The treatment of costumes of women shows that some Gita Govinda series of Rajasthani origin had reached Bijapur by 1610 CE. The ragamala paintings in the collection of the Maharaja of Bikaner are also attributed to the reign of Ibrahim Adil Shah II.
