Footnotes

  • Portraits of both Muslim and Hindu courtiers at the Mughal court were always popular subjects for artists in the court studios. Jodhpur, the Rathore capital of Marwar, was restored to Udai Singh by the Mughal emperor Akbar in 1583. Udai Singh was a useful Mughal ally and in 1587 his daughter Jodha Bai married Akbar's heir Prince Salim, later to become the Mughal emperor Jahangir (reigned 1605-1627). Their son Prince Khurram, the fifth Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, was born in 1592. For further discussion on Udai Singh see R. Crill, Marwar Painting, Mumbai 1999, pp. 34-37, fig. 15.
