Scope note
Refers to a regional school of Rajasthani painting centered around Jodhpur in Marwar. Noteworthy characteristics of late 18th-century painting include large eyes with arched eyebrows, hair curled into coils, and a row of trees across the width of the picture plane. Raja Man Singh (1804-1843) of Jodhpur was an important patron of Marwar painting.
