JASWANT SINGH II WAS A PROGRESSIVE RULER WHO EMBRACED THE MODERN WORLD. DURING HIS REIGN HE MADE MANY ENGINEERING AND INFRASTRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS TO HIS STATE. JASWANT SINGH CONTINUED WITH THE TRADITION OF HAVING AN ATELIER OF COURT ARTISTS,HOWEVER THE INTRODUCTION OF PHOTOGRAPHY HAD A GREAT IMPACT ON THEIR ARTISTIC OUTPUT. THERE WAS A FOCUS ON PORTRAITURE AND IN PARTICULAR THE DEPICTION OF THE FULL FACE OF THE SITTER RATHER THAN THE TRADITIONAL PROFILE.
