The Thakurs of Ghanerao as Patrons of Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,

Title:The Thakurs of Ghanerao as Patrons of Painting Court Painting in Rajasthan, edited by Andrew Topsfield,
Author:Crill, Rosemary
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 51-3, p. 92-108
Abstract:Ghanerao is a thikana (fiefdom) close to Marwar's border with Mewar, with a remarkably strong and continuous tradition of patronage of painting. A considerable number of paintings (mainly portraits) done for the Ghanerao Thakurs, either by local court artists or by visiting artists from Jodhpur, survive. Several of these bear inscriptions identifying the ruler, the place where it was painted, the date, and sometimes the artist's name. This unusually full documentation has enabled the writer to chart the development of painting for the Ghanerao Thakurs from circa 1715 to the mid-19th century.
