Abstract:

To enter the world of Rajput painting is to enter a dream world of fantasy and colour, of heroes and heroines gorgeously attired in brilliant hues, of epic poems and love songs, of courtly majesty and India's romantic past. These beautifully illustrated works convey the spirit of the great Hindu classical tradition that existed in painting, literature and all the arts from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Rajput Paintings explores the historical and art-historical background, focusing on the influence of Mughal painting and the important cult of Krishna. It illustrates and explores themes taken from folk tales and epic literature, erotic and religious poems, myths, legends and music, and provides a unique guide to local styles in the principalities of Rajasthan, central India and the Punjab. The illustrations, taken mainly from the collections of the British Museum and the British Library, include many previously unpublished images.
