Maharana Fateh Singh of Mewar

August 31, 1904
Jahangir II 1920-1948

Maharana Fateh Singh of Mewar



Gouache on paper 13.8 x 9.7 in. (35.1 x 24.6 cm.) Front: “Maharana Shri Shri Fatehsinhji 1960 kati sud 10” Charring of pigments and deterioration of the condition has not lessened the charm which artist successfully created in depicting the austere personality of Maharana Fateh Singh of Mewar. Riding a galloping horse, this portrait is possibly taken out of a series of the rulers of Mewar. Pigments used for the portrait are a mixture of natural (namely mineral, metallic and organic) and ready to use synthetic paints. The white horse and same coloured outfit of the Maharana are contrasted with yellow-golden decoration and a bright green background.

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.
