From the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries the patronage of the Rajput rulers of Rajasthan gave rise to a rich profusion of distinctive painting styles, devoted both to the illustration of poetical and religious themes and to royal portraiture and the depiction of court life.
The contributors to this book explore various topis of recent research which throw light on the major (and some minor) Rajastahani schools of painting and their social, historical, and religious background. The articles are based on material from a multitute of public and private collections in India and throughout the world, and wall-paintings in situ. Besides chapters on less familiar aspects of local painting styles, essays on individual illustrated manuscripts, and on artists, their families, and patrons are included.
