Rajasthani Miniature Painting of Royal Picnic
From Rajasthan, painted in the Mewar style, this miniature depicts two members of a royal household on a picnic. They are attended by three servants--one whisking away flying insects, one pouring wine from a flask and the third holding another flask. The seated couple are sharing a cup of wine. All five figures stand out in stark contrast to the dark gray/green forest that surrounds them. Two lines of Urdu calligraphy float in gold-colored paint across the top of the miniature. This early 20th century work is painted on a page taken from a 19th century manuscript. The painted area is in very good condition; the margins of the manuscript show some discoloration. Dimensions including margins: height 8.75" (22 cm), width 5.5" (14 cm). Dimensions of painted area: height 6.5" (16 cm), width 3.5" (8.5 cm) SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
