Paintings of Mewar royal hunts took a different direction than those of Kotah. Wheras the Kotah hunting scenes baffle the viewer with their labyrinthine entanglement of trees, hunters and prey, those of Mewar are rather more illusionistic in their treatment of space. With their raised perspective, the effect is almost cartographic.
The annual Mewar boar-hunting season followed four months of rain, starting in November or December. Impressionistic details in this painting, the blurred lines and smudgy trees, beautifully evoke the damp and humid weather at that time of year. Another painting of a boar-hunt of comparble date, sharing many features but rather more rigid is published by Andrew Topsfield, The City Palace Museum Udaipur, Ahmedabad, 1990, cat.14, p.49.
