Equestrian Portrait of Maharana Bhim Singh

Ghasi Indian

Not on view

Maharana Bhim Singh is shown on horseback surrounded by retainers on foot. The artist Ghasi is first encountered as a draftsman for Colonel James Tod. After Chokha's death, about 1824, Ghasi became the principal artist at the Mewar court. The heavy outlining, glowing skin tones, and ornamental use of gold are typical of Ghasi's style.
