Catalogue Note

An extremely sensitive rendering executed with extreme clarity and almost surely from the hand of the Jaipur master Ramjidas (fl. 1755-85).  The servant Poliram depicted in pure white muslin - his hands folded in humility - the composition slightly altered with delicate pentimenti.

For related works, see A. K. Das, "Activities of the Jaipur Suratkhana 1750-68" in John Guy (ed.) Indian Art and Connoisseurship, 1995, and R. Pratap, The Organization of Suratkhana of Jaipur and Its Celebrated Artist Sahibram, 1988, p. 27-35. For further discussion about the artist see M. E. Aitken,"Sahib Ram," in M.C. Beach, E. Fischer, B. N. Goswamy, Masters of Indian Painting 1650-1900, Artibus Asiae Sup 48 I/II, 2011, pp. 623-640.
