Description: In the late seventeenth century, Rajput masters began to develop individualized styles, moving away from the tradition of anonymous craftsmen. Works were not always signed, but individual styles became easier to recognize, especially those of the artists working for Amar Singh II (1698-1710) of Mewar. One, who painted an equestrian portrait of the ruler, used stippling to provide a sense of plasticity, perhaps in imitation of European prints. Although produced for a Rajput patron, the painting is very Mughal-like in the spacious, naturalistic treatment of landscape and in the portrait like delineation of the individual faces.
