DESCRIPTION

Duryodhana and his brothers
Razmnama painting
ca.1598
Opaque water color and gold on paper

This painting has been detached from an illustrated volume of the Razmnama, or Book of War, the Persian translation of the Mahabharata. This Sanskrit text was translated by order of the emperor Akbar so that the Persian-speaking Muslims of his court could understand the major texts of Hinduism. Another painting from the same copy of the manuscript, which was illustrated by Akbar's artists, is dated 1598. The name of the artist, 'Kamal, son of Khem' is written in the lower border.

The scene depicts Duryodhana who has gone with his brothers to the house of Salya to ask him to be Kama's charioteer in the great war of the title of the epic.
