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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
