Footnotes

  • Published
    B. N. Goswamy, Manaku of Guler: the Life and Work of another great Indian Painter from a small Hill State, Museum Rietberg Zurich in collaboration with The Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarth, Zurich 2017, p. 488, pl. B276.

    The inscription reads: manu nauaan; dacha savarnti; putar bhutaketu, diptaketu, The ninth Manu, Daksha Savarni, with his two sons, Bhutaketu and Diptaketu.

    Manaku, who was probably born around 1700, was the elder brother of Nainsukh and son of Pandit Seu. He lived and worked at Guler for his entire life. His name appears in the colophon of a Gita Govinda of 1730, though he must have worked on an earlier Ramayana by Pandit Seu. In 1735 he began his Bhagavata Purana series.
