Indeed she completes that picture of gorgeousness herself. Thick black hair tied back with gold ornaments, which match the brocade of her silk lehenga. It is a deep blue colour that sits well against her smooth, fair skin. As could be gleaned from the background, it is a hot day, so she has let the dupatta slide off her, letting the sun kiss the exposed parts of her body.
This contemporary work of art has been made after the style of Raja Ravi Verma, the pioneer of Indian oil painting. Devis, paralokiya as well as ihalokiya, were his favourite subjects like the one in this painting. Each of the handpicked oils in our collection are chosen for their workmanship and treatment of the subject. This one seems to be telling the unassuming story of a quiet afternoon.
