Four Centuries of Rajput Painting

Mewar, Marwar and Dhundar Indian Miniatures from the Collection of Isabella and Vicky Ducrot

Continua a leggere
The catalogue of the over two hundred and fifty Indian miniatures which are in the Ducrot collection and which have never been published hitherto represents one of the richest known repertoires of Indian painting, as it documents almost all the schools of painting in India, and in particular those of the Rajput courts: the most significant miniatures come from the courts of the three main dynasties of Rajasthan, those of the Sisodia, Rathore and Kachwaha clans. The collection also contains important examples of Mughal and Deccan painting, a group of thirty-six Pahari pictures and paintings from Central India.
The volume presents, through stunning images, a lavish selection of Indian pictorial production devoted to the illustration of sacred and literary texts,
documenting the stylistic features and choices of theme of various cultural and religious areas of India between the 16th and 18th centuries. But it also provides important information on the painters, customs and cultural interests of the different royal courts and on the types of text illustrated: an invaluable aid for anyone who wishes to get to know and understand the multifaceted art of the Indian subcontinent.
