Satire and Humour in Kishangarh Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,

Title:Satire and Humour in Kishangarh Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,
Author:Najat, Haidar Navina
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 51-3, p. 78-91
Abstract:Humorous and satirical paintings appear in Kishangarh painting from the first quarter of the 18th century until the third quarter. These striking but often obscure compositions are sometimes accompanied by Persian and Brajbhasha inscriptions, which shed light on their meaning. This article brings together a number of such works, interpreting them in light of their inscriptions and relating them to one another as well as to larger trends beyond Kishangarh painting.
