Sahibdin
flourished 17th century, India

Indian miniature painter.

His work dominated the Mewar school of Rajasthani painting. Though he was a Muslim, Sahibdin was fully at ease with Hindu themes. He produced abstract compositions that are full of brilliant colour and endowed with religious fervour. Among the important surviving examples of his paintings are a ragamala (musical modes) series (1628); a series on the Bhagavata-Purana, a scriptural text (1648); and the sixth book (Yuddha-kanda) of the Hindu epic the Ramayana (1652).
