Indian Miniature Painting Shri Nathji  Nathdwara/mewar 19c


An listing from GUARANTEED AS DESCRIBED
Nandamahatsava:
Shri Nathi before a picchvai and Navanitpriyaji in swing
Mewar or Nathdwara, circa early 19th century
Opaque watercolour on wasli (hand-made paper for miniature 21.6cm by 17cm (approx 8 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches)
A painting showing Nandamahatsava, the festival commemorating the celebrations of Nanda and Yashoda, Krishna's foster parents, at their home. The main figure is the idol Shri Nathji, who stands before a picchvai (cloth backdrop to his shrine). In front of the shrine (and below in the painting) sit Nanda and Yashoda at a smaller shrine with the idol Navanitpriya in a swing. This idol is of baby Krishna crawling with a butterball in one hand. It is housed at a separate Nathdwaran shrine and is used to represent Shri Nathi instead of the main idol during this very festival. This makes the painting unusual, as one would expect to see only Navanitpriya in his swing, and then only with nanda, Krishna foster-father, who in reality is represented by a priest with false beard etc. it is interesting to look closely at the things surrounding this tiny idol of a child-god - we see toys left for him to play with including a horse and an elephant. To make things more interesting is the goswami attending Shri Nathji looks like it is Tilakayat Girdharji (1769-1807). The style of painting differs in many aspects from what one would expect of a painting by a Nathdwara artist, looking more like something to be expected by a Mewari thikana artist.
All paintings are posted/shipped at less than cost price!
