This painting has been attributed to an anonymous Indian artist now called the "Stipple Master" who, with the suport of his patron Maharana Amar Singh II of Mewar, was the initiator of a new painting style in Mewar in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The inscription on the back states that the monkey is named Husaini and “comes from” Nawab Davad (or Daud) Khan, most likely refering to Daud Khan Panni, a powerful nobleman and a faujdar (a military commander).
