Catalogue Description: Maharana Jagat Singh (with a dark beard, holding a gold elephant goad) rides in a procession of elephants, surrounded by courtiers. The Maharana is followed by bearers of a chauri (fly whisk) and a parade standard in the form of a solar emblem. Attendants or soldiers walk before the Maharana, carrying various weapons. Portraits of rulers and their entourage in procession were relatively common in 18th-century Mewari painting, but processions in which all the courtiers ride elephants are extremely rare. This image must represent a specific procession and/or a special occasion.
