The Collection of Royal Portraits of India

Maharaja Ranjit Singh

Some time back while surfing the internet I came across some photographs of royal families of India. I think, back in those times only royal people had an ability of getting them photographed or painted. Common people didn’t have these means to enjoy the facility.

Although most of the portraits have almost the same poses but still each of them has its own profound appeal. Another thing that I noticed, everyone is so serious in the portraits. I wonder why they never laughed..
