Footnotes

  • British patrons in India in the 19th century were fascinated by local tribes, castes and occupations, as reflected in this miniature. Huzuri, an artist from Ustehar close to Kangra, was particularly good at such scenes and portraits and found an eager patron in Constance Villiers-Stuart (1877-1966), an author who wrote on Mughal gardens, and who referred to him as 'the last of Rajput court painters.'

    For a similar miniature attributed to Huzuri see W. G. Archer, Indian Paintings from the Punjab Hills, London 1973, vol. I, p. 309, no. 76; and vol. II, p. 234, no. 76.
