Maharana Amar Singh II or Sangram Singh Hunting Wild Boar

This painting, which depicts one of two eminent rulers of the Mewar court in the later seventeenth and early eighteenth century, is likely a nineteenth-century work in an archaic style. It is nonetheless the work of an accomplished painter, in which equestrian hunters slay their prey with lances and bow and arrow while beaters drive more boars into the center of the field. Concealed in front of a hillock is the ruler’s entourage, with palanquin and standard at the ready.
