Description

Ruknuddin is one of the most celebrated artists of the Bikaner painting atelier. His exquisite mastery of brushwork and portraiture can be noted even in the spontaneity of an informal study. From the same illustrious family of Bikaner artists, he was a second cousin of Nur Muhammad, who created the portrait drawing of Maharaja Rai Singh of Bikaner (1987.1100).
