Maharao Ram Singh of Bundi (r.1821-89) with ceremonial sword raised as he rides a richly caparisoned horse, beside them footmen in attendance bearing changi (standard) chauris (yak-tail flywhisks) and emblems of state. Kotah, circa 1860-80. Opaque watercolour with gold on wasli. 35 x 27cm
This appears to be by the same hand at around the same time as the painting of Ram singh with sons in attencance, and catalogued circa 1830, sold at Sotheby's New York Indian & Southeast Asian Works of Art, 20th March 2013, lot 323. By the kindness of Prof. Joachim K. Bautze I am informed that the Sotheby painting of Ram Singh has in attendance his sons giving a strong indication of its likely date of production which cannot be circa 1830 but at the earliest 1860. A painting held by Los Angeles County Museum of Art featuring a hunt with Ram Singh of Bundi and Ram Singh of Kotah with the former appearing of a similar age is given a date of 1880.
