Radha Krishna Rajasthani Miniature Painting

This miniature painting depicts Radha and Krishna – the divine lovers of all times. Besides Hindu followers they also appeal to followers of any religion. The pair symbolise the eternal love between people and god. This Radha – Krishna miniature is aesthetically painted with attention given to each and every detail in the masterpiece. The artist has used real gold leaf – ultra thin sheets hammered out of pure (92%) gold – to give it a rich and regal look. The elaborate border is made up of intricate flowers and birds.

Indian miniature painting is an art form that can be traced back to the 10th century. Jaipur in Rajasthan was, and still is, the centre for these fine miniatures. The artists use a palette of natural organic colours, as well as real silver and gold, to bring miniature paintings to vibrant life. As well as handmade paper, a variety of other materials are also used to paint on, including wood, ivory and marble.
