Né en 1869 à Nathdwara, l’art de Ghasiram Sharma s’inscrit à la fois dans la peinture traditionnelle du Rajasthan héritée de ses prédécesseurs, tout en étant attentif aux évolutions artistiques du changement de siècle. Les productions picturales du peintre qui manie également la photographie, évoquent aussi l’esthétique permise par ce nouveau procédé. Admiré par ses contemporains et ses successeurs pour ses compositions inventives, son utilisation des techniques européennes (dessin au crayon et à la gomme) et pour ses talents de portraitiste, Ghasiram Sharma est désormais reconnu comme l’un des maîtres de la peinture indienne de son temps. Il réalisa notamment de nombreux portraits de Goswami Tilakayat Govardhanal, qui est le sujet de ce dessin.

Born in 1869 at Nathdwara, Ghasiram Sharma’s art enters into the traditional Rajathani painting inherited from his predecessors, but also shows a careful attention to the artistic evolutions of the new century. The painter’s pictural productions also evoke the new aesthetic allowed by photography. Admired by his contemporaries and by his successors for his inventive compositions, his use of European techniques (drawing with a pencil and a rubber), as well as his talents as a portraitist, Ghasiram Sharma is now considered as a master of Indian painting. He painted many portraits of Goswami Tilakayat Govardhanal, who is the subject of this drawing.
