Jodhpur was the principal seat of the Marwar Rathores who were significant patrons of art. We find significant artwork from their ateliers in the course of the 600-odd years. The Jodhpur court was one of the most prolific in the creation of miniatures. In the blue city Jodhpur, rests the studio of multi-faceted and multi-talented master artist Lal Singh Bhati who has created over 20,000 paintings, many of which are in the Jodhpur School of Rajasthani Miniature Painting, which usually depicts aristocracy and figures from Hindu mythology. He will be your curator for this experience.
In earlier periods, Jodhpur miniatures were far more indigenous but some of the rulers spent considerable time in Kabul bringing a Persian touch to Marwar’s art. Besides the court scenes and Maharaja’s portraits, even festivals, legends and tales, religious texts and epics were illustrated in the Marwar court and many such albums and folios are displayed in museums across the world.
Did you know? Despite the influences of Marwar art, Jodhpur style has its own striking features and as a result is more refined and more popular.
Lal Singh Bhati also sculpts in clay, etches in glass, restores antiques, and reinterprets traditional handicrafts. He has also won numerous government and international awards for his gold-embossed work on leather and wood. As if that wasn’t enough, he also makes sketches for police for criminal identification, AND he runs a gallery and an art school – he’s taught thousands of students in the last three decades.
