One other painting from the same ragamala is published in W.G. Archer, Indian Paintings from the Punjab Hills, London, 1973, Bilaspur, no. 18(ii), pp. 176-7. Archer's own notes on this painting go into considerable detail about the historical provenance of this and a further group of Bilaspur paintings.
