Description: For a time, the pre-Muslim traditions enjoyed a resurgence, as the Mughal Empire waned and the foreign successors sought to gain control. Mughal iconography retained its hold, however, and hunting scenes, portraits, and other secular subjects continued to be popular. Although the general trend during the period was away from the Mughal style, certain courts made a sharper break than others. At Jaipur and Kishangarh, for instance, artists continued to produce paintings with the fine Mughal finish well into the nineteenth century, while at Uniara, a rougher treatment soon became prevalent.
