SHAIKH MUHAMMAD AMIR OF KARRAYA
Shaikh Muhammad Amir was a resident of Karraya, who went to Calcutta circa 1830, to seek employment as an artist. It is unusual for the name of a Company School artist to be recorded as the majority of work for the western market was unsigned. Muhammad Amir of Karraya, however, built up a huge following, successfully finding many commissions for watercolours of Calcutta resident's property, servants, pets and conveyances. He is without doubt the foremost proponent of this hybrid style of watercolour painting.
