About this title


These paintings reveal the resilient imagination of the traditional Mewar artists under the influences of the Mughal School and later of Western art and photography.


"The well reproduced images (and many details) provide superb and often unique documentation of court life, with thorough explanations of the events and lists of participants frequently given in lengthy inscriptions on the reverse sides. Mr Topsfield knows the history of Udaipur and Mewar State well, and draws widely from contemporary historical accounts to further explain and enliven each work. When possible, specific locales and architectural complexes are also identified, sometimes for the first time, making this a fine sourcebook for the historian as well as the art- or architectural historian. -- Milo C Beach, Journal of the American Oriental Society"
