Biography from Sotheby's London, New Bond Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The artist Ruknuddin was the leading master of the Bikaner school in the second half of the seventeenth century. His career lasted from about 1646 to 1697 and he was director of the atelier for a time under Anup Singh. He probably trained under the artist Ali Raza (Reza), one of several painters known to have come to Bikaner from Delhi at the request of Karan Singh (r.1631-69). Thus Ruknuddin was thoroughly exposed to the Mughal idiom during his artistic training and developed his own lyrical and delicate Mughalised style, marked by strong colours and exquisite detail. The rendering here of Ratan Singh's turban, garments, hands, sword and dagger bear this aspect out.
