Bijapur Themes in Bikaner Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,

Title:Bijapur Themes in Bikaner Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,
Author:Glynn, Catherine
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 51-3, p. 65-77
Abstract:The author explores a number of specific visual images appearing in paintings from the Deccan sultanate of Bijapur which influenced work done in the Rajput state of Bikaner. By investigating the historical and political connections between the two geographically disparate areas the cultural relationship is brought into focus. Set patterns of Bijapur images, used first in Bikaner paintings in the third quarter of the 17th century, take on special significance and are repeated in other Bikaner paintings for almost 100 years. These images, specifically linked to royal, equestrian portraiture, provoke reflection on the relationship not only between the Rajputs and the Deccan but also between the Rajputs and the Mughals.
