DESCRIPTION

6.1 x 5.7 in. (15.5 x 14.5 cm.) each folio Gouache on paper, bound as a book These folios are possibly the earliest examples of Nathdwara paper painting tradition. These depict all the influences which shaped the style, namely Kishangarh, Mewar besides folk counterparts. All the compositions are similar and are done in primary and secondary colour scheme but with confident lines. Girdharji who was a Tilkayat from 1769 to 1807, is shown as a young priest in most of the folios and this series was made while he was a child. These nine folios, depict various forms of Krishna and their worship by different Tilkayats and Goswamis in similar square frames. Mughal Library
