ARTWORK SUMMARY


Casualty of War:A Portrait of Maharaja Duleep Singh, 2016


This artwork, commissioned by National Museums Scotland and currently on display at Glasgow‘s Kelvingrove Museum, is inspired by artefacts (mostly jewellery) in the National Museum of Scotland collections associated with Maharaja Duleep Singh: the last ruler of Punjab, who was deposed by the British as a child, converted to Christianity and sent to England to be brought up as an English gentleman.  Rather than a straightforward portrait, this image is a narrative of Duleep’s life, times and legacy to provide a context for exploring what the museum artefacts represent from different perspectives. That is, not just as the once personal property of a Sikh Maharaja now in public British possession, but as material objects belonging to a specific culture and time - namely, that of pre-Partition India, Colonialism and Empire. Interwoven into this visual history, is Duleep Singh’s special connection with Sir John Login: an individual who possibly more than any other, influenced Duleep Singh’s early upbringing and whose involvement with the Maharaja, both as his guardian and as a key player in British interests in India, reflected the ambiguous nature of Duleep Singh’s relationship with the British establishment. On the one hand, the work shows Duleep Singh’s importance as an historical figure of tremendous significance and global relevance whose life story is inextricably tied to and helped shaped British-Indian, Punjabi, Anglo-Sikh history, politics and culture, past and present. On the other hand, it depicts Duleep Singh as the tragic, human figure. An innocent individual and victim of circumstance who became a casualty of war caught up in the power games and politics of the British Empire. Overall, it is a tribute to the Maharaja who became Britain’s first resident Sikh.
