A puff of black smoke tells us that a Raja has just fired a shot from his matchlock at a charging black bear. The bear then depicted again, now sprawled below either wounded or dead. A retainer runs alongside with a bow over his shoulder pointing at the prey. On a green expanse of landscape surrounded by stylized hills and burning brush.
Our painting was produced by an Udaipur atelier in the reign of Maharana Bhim Singh (r. 1777-1828) during a time of change and artistic renewal at the Mewar painting workshops. The artist Bagta had left Udaipur in the mid 1760’s for opportunities among the Rawats of nearby Devgarh, exiting Mewar during a difficult political period in its conflict with the Marathas. But now his son, the artist Choka, arrived to work at Udaipur. Its ruler Maharana Bhim Singh was an avid patron of the arts and had an amiable nature. As Col. James Tod had observed after meeting Maharana Bhim Singh for the first time in 1818: "There was an intense earnestness in every word he uttered, which delivered with great fluency of speech and dignity of manner, inspired deep respect and sympathy" (Topsfield 2008 p. 215). A royal patron who also inspired his artists - Bhim Singh was the son of Maharana Ari Singh II - attaining the Sisodia throne at the age of ten.
Refer to Andrew Topsfield, Paintings from Rajasthan, Melbourne, 1980, for a discussion of Mewar paintings during the reign of Maharana Bhim Singh.
For a discussion of Maharana Bhim Singh and his workshops see Andrew Topsfield, Court Paintings at Udaipur: Artibus Asiae Sup 44, Zurich, 2008, Chapter 8.
