Footnotes

  • Thakur Ganga Singh began his career as an artist in the Forest Research Institute in Dehra Dun, travelling to England in 1931 to train at the Slade in London. These botanical watercolours continue a tradition of flower painting combining elegant decoration with botanical accuracy. The watercolour studies were commissioned by Maharajah Yadhavindra Singh of Patiala, a keen botanist who from the 1920s began to collect the flora of the Simla Hills with the intention of writing a book on the subject. Ganga Singh was engaged by the Maharajah in 1942 and painted over four hundred watercolours over a twenty year period. Later in life Singh was awarded the title of 'Rai Sahib' for his contributions in the field of arts.
