Reverse painting on glass
27.5 x 21 inches (along with 2” frame) / 70 x 53 cms
Period: Estimate to be around 60 years old
Condition report: The work is in good condition, but has a few stains, colour bleeds, and the paint has chipped in a few small patches across the work, as is visible clearly in the image. Please contact us for detailed images.
(This work is fragile and hence should ideally not be shipped and should be hand carried, hence we would prefer if the work could be picked up from Jaipur or Delhi. Please consult us for shipping directives before ordering.)
This artwork depicts the story of Kaliya Mardan: the subjugation of the serpent Kaliya (who was polluting the Yamuna river with his poison). The work introduces us to a very endearing countenance of Krishna, and is executed in a folksy idiom, typical of the Mysore school of painting. The painting makes prominent use of gold colour (which is difficult to capture in this image), and is framed in the vintage frame, as imaged.
