Lot Essay

Maharana Ari Singh is most often depicted in paintings on horseback, either in processions or in hunting scenes. Jugarsi, son of the artist Jiva, is recorded as an artist working in the Udaipur royal atelier in the 1750s-60s alongside others such as Bakhta, Bhopa, Deva and Kesu Ram (Topsfield, 2001, pp.200-202). For another equestrian portrait of Maharana Ari Singh by Jugarsi which sold in these Rooms recently, see 25 May 2017, lot 48. For other comparable portraits which have sold in these Rooms, see 12 June 2018, lot 70; 26 May 2016, lot 47; 1 October 2012, lot 68.
