Maharana Raj Singh riding, Udaipur, c1670
Raj Singh I, Maharana of Mewar (ruled 1652 - 1680)
Mounted on a rearing horse, Maharana Raj Singh is accompanied by attendants on foot.
This boldly coloured reinterpretation of a common Mughal portrait convention represents the Mewar ruler more as the ideal Rajput martial hero than as a closely observed individual.
