Oue knowledge of the various schools of Rajasthani painting has greatly increased in recent years. The discovery of the Kishangarh school is associated with the name of the late Eric Dickinson, on time Professor of English at the Mayo College, Lahore. His ambition to bring out a monograph on the subject with the present writer was thwarted by his untimely death in 1951. However, in 1959 the Lalit Kala Akademi published a beautiful monograph entitled "Kishangarh Painting" by Eric Dickinson and Karl Khandalavala as a fitting tribute to his discovery.
