Portrait of a lady

  • Description

    Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh’s painters produced many life-size royal portraits or studies of Krishna and Radha, showing a highly refined elegance in their outline drawing. Smaller scale subjects of noble ladies were also produced, in many cases attributable to the artist Sahib Ram.
