A particularly large , Indian Painting, gouache on canvas. 58.26 X 40.15 inches. Classical subject matter, from a Hindu epic poem. CEREMONIAL ELEPHANT IN FESTIVAL PROCESSION, WITH ENTOURAGE.
ILLUSTRATED SCENE FROM THE BHAGAVATA PURANA, THE POPULAR STORY OF THE GOD. AND WORTHY OF FURTHER INVESTIGATION? Is very much in the Indian tradition, in which generation after generation of painters recreate images that have gone before with, no doubt, Indian minatures being used as inspiration in this respect.This second enchanting example has been. Sourced by lacewing-interiors from a reputable dealer who specialises, primarily, in Tibetan and Nepalese. He reliably informs us he acquired this particularly large vintage painting, along with a smaller companion piece by the same hand from Varanasi, 30 years ago or so, and it's been in storage ever since. SEE LAST IMAGE FOR SMALLER EXAMPLE. In sharp contrast to the precision celebrated in Indian minature painting, there is a refreshing looseness to the application of the gouache on the rough weave canvas here. Possibly due to its size? Nevertheless, they both share familiar subject matter, a clarity of vision and use of rich colours. Indian paintings celebrate all things. In their choice of subject matter. Familiar themes being scenes from.
Ramayana or the Bhagavata Purna. As well as portraits of popular deities, rulers, places, mythological figures, epic themes, icons and ornamental themes from nature. This painting is currently presented sewn onto a protective cotton sheet, and not stretched or mounted.
