Drei "Bundi"-Rāgamālās: Ein Beitrag zur Geschichte der rajputischen Wandmalerei

With this volume, we would like to contribute to the history of Rajput mural painting by presenting, iconographically identifying and dating three sequences of 36 previously unpublished murals each. Two of the sequences are located in a part of the palace of Bundi, the capital of the former princely state and present district of the same name in the state of Rajasthan, which is usually inaccessible to the public and which has produced a school of painting that is mentioned side by side with the famous school of painting of Kangra in the Pahari region. Sometimes this style of painting is even considered one of the most beautiful styles of Indian miniature painting.
