 In this painting although uninsurable, the identity of this royal rider can be determined by comparison with other portraits of the Kota ruler Chattur Sal The painting is a typical Rajput equestrian portrait. In many parts of the world, equestrian portraits were used as the ultimate means of proclaiming the commanding strength of a ruler. As horses were especially important to the warrior rulers of the Rajput world, such portrayals were considered prestigious and consequently were frequently produced.

Although the painting dates from before his assumption of the throne, Chattur Sal is nonetheless shown in a regal manner astride a lively and grandly caparisoned horse, surrounded by various attendants carrying a royal parasol, peacock-feather fans as well as other princely paraphernalia. It was especially common in Rajasthani examples to find the retainers depicted on foot, emphasizing the distinction and status of the mounted ruler. The attendant’s animated poses, appearing to match the lively gait of horse, reveal the formal intentions of such portrayals, which were meant to extol the magnificence of the rider. Certainly in reality such attendants would have had to make a mad, unorganized dash to keep up with the horse, hardly what is presented in this smoothly orchestrated depiction Kota painting evolved from the earlier well-established Bundi School of painting, but as recently discussed. Kota patrons did not favor the same subjects.

Princely themes were of more concern, and there is large number of various kinds of portraits of the Kota rulers. Although politically Kota’s fortunes had fallen, the nineteenth century was a period of efflorescence in the arts, especially during the reign of Chattur Sal father, Ram Singh. Portraits of Chattur Sal like the present example, still display some of brilliance achieved in Kota painting even though certain stiffens as well as garish color, a result of newly utilized synthetic pigments from Europe, have also pervaded the works.
