Goache painting of Maharana Amar Singh (reg. 1697-1710) of Mewar and his son Sangram Singh (reg. 1710-34) conversing in a garden, painted by Wajid in c. 1708. Inscribed on the reverse in nagari script is: 'rana amar singh kavar sangram singh ubha chai/ wajid.' [Rana Amar Singh and Prince Sangram Singh are standing. Wajid.]

This painting shows the Maharana in the centre with his attendants behind him holding his gold hookah-base and a chowrie as he speaks with his son. There is a domed palace building to the left and a garden in the foreground. The Isarda artist Wajid must have accompanied his master Thakur Kauju Ram in the train of Maharaja Jai Singh of Amber to Udaipur in 1708, where Udaipur, Amber and Jodhpur formed a triple alliance against the Mughals.
