During the Sikh period, the visual art music etc. flourished and it goes without saying that any development of cultural environment postulates peace, prosperity and aesthetic taste of the patron. Paintings of Sikh army officers were popular. This was due to the fact that the Sikh feudals, emotionally flattered by their victories, cherished to be glorified.

This painting shows a cadre of the 15th Bengal Native Infantry. It is a prototype of a Sikh from Ludhiana, with a massive turban, red and yellow striped, as part of the uniform. The moustaches are curled up and the beard is uncut and rolled up next to the jaw line. He wears a red coat with green front and trimmings. A belt tightens at the waist. On the left side of the chest hang the decorations, accorded a place of pride. A red sash seems from there, across his body and towards the back. He wears loose black trousers, tucked in boots. Attached to his uniform are two straps to hold the sheath of the sword that he holds. Lightly held in his left hand is the hilt of the sword, but the artist has made the lower part of the sword sheath look like a baton.

The lines of the portrait are clear cut and the colours used are basic red, green and black. The officer regally stands alone, with no need for a background.

  • This water colour is of my great grand father which was painted by chater paul chaterin 1893.
    The name of my great grand father was Subedar Ram singh OBI. He was later promoted to the rank of Captain.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
