Gouache on paper 16 x 12 in. (40.6 x 30.5 cm.) Front: “12 Kalam Nathulal Musavar ki 16” (Holy men smear forehead / body and wear saffron clothing & remain unmarried, but Chatur leads a domestic simple life and still attains higher stature) -Chatur Singhji Bavji in ‘Chatur Chintamani The saint poet Chatur Singhji Bavji (from Karjali branch) was a social reformer and endorsed education and awareness. A number of books are to his credit and his couplets and verses made a large impact on society for their simple and lucid language. He was revered by the then Maharana, and his humble belongings are still preserved which gives a glimpse of his simple and modest life style. This is a rare portrait, projecting Chatur Singh seated in a lavish room but on a strange note has a number of well-bred pet dogs in foreground.
