Jagat Singh of Medta

August 31, 1800
Marwar Court
Akbar Shah II 1806–1837

Jagat Singh of Medta



Khakha or drawing on paper 13 x 9.25 in. (33 x 23.5 cm.) Back: “Raj Shri Jagat Singhji Medatiyo Sameti ro dhani Isarot?” The four portraits are done in a thakur style (also known as Ghanerao) which developed as the offshoot of Marwar and Maru kingdoms like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Bikaner. This style of painting is particularly know for the portraits of armed Rajput warriors astride horses in their military paraphernalia. The simple line drawings are expressive but have a dry appeal of the Maru Pradesh, or dry desert lands of Rajputana, where they were rendered.

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
