The City Palace Museum Udaipur: Paintings of Mewar Court Life

Andrew Topsfield (Author)
Synopsis The well reproduced images (and many details) provide superb and often unique documentation of court life, with thorough explanations of the events and lists of participants frequently given in lengthy inscriptions on the reverse sides. Mr. Topsfield knows the history of Udaipur and Mewar State well, and draws widely from contemporary historical accounts to further explain and enliven each work. When possible, specific locales and architectectural complexes are also identified, sometimes for the first time, making this a fine sourcebook for the historians as well as the art-or architectural historian.
