Title: Portrait of Rana of Mewar, Jogath Singh, mid-18th century (Private Collection)
Author(s): Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham

Description: The painting blends the Mughal and indigenous traditions. The faces of the figures are individualized portraits, not types, and an attempt is made to indicate spatial relationships: perspective is used in the lines of the rug and of the building in the background. The hierarchy of scale interferes with the naturalistic approach, however, as the less important figures in the foreground are smaller than those in the background. The fine brushwork and delicate colours are Mughal.
