Wedding Procession

Description Exhibitions 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.
