Kanwarji Shri Bhaktavar Singh Ji Jhula Theka, Javan Pana KI Tasveer Che
Kunwarji (Prince) Shri Bakhtavar Singh Ji’s portrait or image in his youth (possibly- in a swing)
Jhilai is a small and less well-known court in a thikana located between Sawai Madhopur and Uniara. Its
distinctive style of painting, which emerged in the late eighteenth century, is likely the work of a single artist with a workshop.
The monsoon landscape writhes with energy: scalloped clouds almost bursting with water, snaking streaks of lightening, surging hills, rhythmically dotted shrubs, jagged edged silver lakes and slashing lines that represent tall grass or patch of rain, are hallmarks of the mannered Jhilai idiom. The artist excelled in capturing the drama of a hunt during the monsoon, but was apparently less interested in the human figure. In contrast to the dramatic landscape, fleeing boars, and thrashing dogs, the aristocratic hunter is a stiff cut-out.
