Artists trained at the court of the Mughal emperors brought sophisticated concepts of portraiture and composition to Jodhpur in the 17th and 18th centuries, and these ideas were combined with distinctive local styles and bold colours to form a uniquely lively school of painting. This book is the first to show a wide range of these vibrant paintings in full colour and to provide a complete survey of the development of this little known school of Rajasthani painting.
Drawn largely from the royal collection in Jodhpur itself, the paintings discussed in the book also include examples from public and private collections in India, the USA and Great Britain, most of which have never before been published. Beautifully illustrated and thoroughly researched, this important work will be essential for all lovers of Indian painting.
