Even the Rajas of Tanjore helped in the spread of European artistic influence. The Raja Sarabhoji had Danish tutors who taught him to draw in the European manner and he would present sets of his paintings to the British residents and guests. In 1836 he became a member of the R.I.B.A and presented the association with ten of his drawings of his palace and of local temples.
