The word 'maharaja' - literally 'great king' - conjures up a vision of splendour and magnificence. This lavishly illustrated book examines the real and perceived worlds of the maharaja from the early eighteenth century to 1947, when the Indian Princes ceded their territories into the modern states of India and Pakistan. The authors explore the spectacular material culture of India's rulers, showcasing rich and varied objects that reflect different aspects of royal life. Indian and Western works from a wide range of media including paintings, photographs, textiles and dress, jewellery, jewelled objects, metalwork and furniture are considered within a broader historical context giving readers an understanding of royal status and identity, court culture and patronage.
