The Foundation is a cultural charitable society devoted to the promotion of Indian art and culture. The works of art acquired by Jaya who was very fond of collecting artefacts especially of the company period, grew into a sizeable number. This collection was subsequently bequeathed by her to the Rasaja Foundation together with the her house in New Delhi. Paintings and drawings illustrated here are executed on paper, in traditional Indian styles. However some works are executed in the western water colour technique, popularly known as company style.
