Wedding Procession

Description Provenance Credit
Description This is an example of a historical painting that recorded the ceremonies and spectacles of the Rajput court. This genre was popular in 19th-century Rajasthan, particularly with Ram Singh II (r. 1827–66), who was the patron of this painting. The wedding procession is depicted here in great detail. The bride's litter, covered with a red cloth, is seen in the center of the painting. In the upper right corner, cannons are being fired in celebration, while fireworks are going off in the upper left.
Provenance John and Berthe Ford, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 2001, by gift.
Credit Gift of John and Berthe Ford, 2001
