Catalogue Note

Raja Jagat Singh stands strikingly upright holding a small gold cup.  He wears a flowing white muslin pleated jama and ankle-length patka (sash) and brilliant cinnabar-red Rathor pagri (turban).  He wears a mauve mala (garland) of blossoms around his neck.  His beautifully dressed and bejeweled bride facing him with a matching blossom garland - holding a flask offering another drink of intoxicating liquor - her feet seem to levitate above the strip of dark ground at bottom.  A handmaiden holds his sheathed sword and a slender whisk signifying the occasion.  The group standing in a formal frieze beautifully composed against a flat apple green ground rising to a blue band of sky.

Laid within buff/natural specked outer border strips of gray-silver floral design with inner black ruled lines.
