Fig. 53: DARGAH OF QUTB SAHIB AT MEHRAULI, Muhammad Yusuf, 1840-50.
For the dargah of Qutb Sahib at Mehrauli, see fig. 43. ascribed to Muhammad Yusuf is
a rare artist, obviously not from Mazhar Ali Khan's studio since his style is so radically
different, much more linear and less picturesque. He is an artist who appears to have
gone to the Middle East to earn a living after 1858, since he is recorded as the artist of a
drawing of the shrine at Karbala in Iraq dated 1875.
Watercolour, 45 x 59 cm. British Library, London, Add.Or.4308.
