Antique Tanjore Painting of Yuva Krishna with Rukhmini and Satyabhama

Size: 33 inches X 45.5 inches

Age: Approximately Early 20th Century

Krishna is recognized as the absolute incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is one of the most widely worshiped and popular of all Hindu deities

Lord krishna is portrayed in various perspectives: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and the Supreme Power

Krishna married eight queens and it is believed that He subsequently married 16000 or 16,100 maidens, who were held captive by the demon Narakasura, to save their honour.

This Tanjore depicts Krishna with two of his wives, Rukhmini and Satyabhama.

Rukmini is the first and most prominent queen of Krishna. Rukmini is also considered an avatar of Lakshmi, the Goddess of fortune. She fell in love with and longed for Krishna, whose virtue, character, charm and greatness she had heard much of. Krishna heroically kidnapped and eloped with her to prevent an unwanted marriage at her request and saved her from evil Shishupala.

Satyabhama is the second most important wife of Krishna and is believed to be an avatar of Bhudevi, the earth goddess and consort of Vishnu. She is known for her strong will and tantrums. She aided Krishna defeat the demon Narakasura.

The painting stands out for its elaborate embellishment and intricate detailing of jewellery and clothing. #antique #organicpaints #gold #goldfoil #krishna #conserts #rukmini #satyabama #handmade #karnatka #tajorepalace #thanjavur #craftsmanship #cute #chubby #butterboy #raayavintage #saffronart #dagmodern #christies #astaguru #auction #prideofindia

G.R. Santosh
Untitled
Acrylic on canvas board
1978
24.0 x 18.0 inches
.
The characteristic elements of G. R. Santosh’s art was his use of colour which represents forms of energy. His choice of colour portrayed strength but it was the rendition of the radiance that communicated his excellence and mastery of technique. His early works in the tantra may be categorised as geometric abstraction and as his search into the philosophy deepened, there was a greater expressive intent. The appearance of recognisable deities and figure of the Shiva-Shakti combine is seen through different geometric forms and tantric symbols – using the three essential shapes of the point, the triangle and the circle.

Prokash Karmakar
Untitled (Women and a Horse)
1972
Acrylic on handmade paper pasted on canvas pasted on ply board
44.7 x 162.0 inches
Prokash Karmakar’s images are dramatic and action-driven, with a strong element of theatricality. This monumental work opens itself to different interpretations. Some would even say the cut-out has an allegorical import, the figures racing towards each other in a moment of high drama, their silhouettes boldly etched against a surrounding area of blank space, though richly filled with colour, suggestive of a primordial struggle between man and beast or man and nature. Another viewer might ask, is it male ardour? Aggression? The sexually charged scene is alive with possibilities.

This artwork is part our live auction taking place in Mumbai this evening.

Untitled
Gouache and dry pastel on paper pasted on paper
late 1950s
10.7 x 7.0 inches
One of the founding members of the significant artist collective, Calcutta Group, Gopal Ghose’s nature works are detailed studies of flowers, birds, trees and animals. These diverse portraits are achieved through smudges of soft pastels or watercolours, strokes, dashes and daubs. In these two works (second image to follow) the pictorial space is covered by large expanse of colour in the midst of which the form of the flower arises to suggest its airy and delicate presence. Ghose brought attention to nature in the way few artists could, giving them a vivid presence unlike the cold prevision of nature studies.

These artworks are a part of our upcoming auction in Mumbai. To view catalogue and register, please visit: auction.dagmodern.com

J. P. GANGOOLY
Untitled
Oil on canvas
28.0 x 18.0 inches

Nature’s magnificence found a lush expression in J. P. Gangooly’s landscapes. Lofty mountain ranges and meandering rivers were captured in their ephemeral beauty and the artist brings a sensitive treatment to light exposures in his paintings. In this majestic landscape, we are invited to gaze upon the tranquillity of a river as its surface is illuminated by a sun low in the horizon. The idyllic beauty is further accentuated by the sight of hills at a distance and the splendour of the sky set ablaze. His mastery at capturing the light in the mountains, most of them set in the Darjeeling Hills of the Eastern Himalayas, and his riverscapes of shimmering water made him a much sought after artist of atmospheric landscapes, quite in the tradition of established masters such as Turner or Constable.
This work is part of our upcoming auction in Mumbai.

SOHAN QADRI
Untitled
Ink and dye on handmade paper, 2005
54.2 x 39.0 inches

This Untitled work is from a phase when Sohan Qadri’s tantra language had matured to a contained but sure sophistication. The artist evolved a unique style, where he built up a composition with rows of ink-dyed dots puncturing paper. The rows of punctured lines throughout the length of this work resemble a vertebrae that leads the viewer’s attention to move, from darkness to illumination. In Qadri’s hands, the quiet spread of light and the reverberations of sound were captured through a masterful manipulation of colour.

This artwork is part of our upcoming auction in Mumbai.

AVINASH CHANDRA
Untitled
Oil on canvas pasted on cloth, 1955
29.7 x 38.5 in.

An outdoors enthusiast from the Simla hills, Avinash Chandra was instinctively a landscape artist. Seemingly a rendition of a hip Parisian street, the landscape on view is, in fact, an image of Simla, made in the year before Chandra’s departure to the West.
Here, he strikes a carnivalesque atmosphere around a dense landscape of people and buildings adorned by flags and festoons while a fountain adds to the celebratory air. In the years to come, Chandra’s landscapes changed dramatically before morphing into figurescapes.

G. R. SANTOSH
Mother Prakriti
Acrylic on canvas, 1992
53.0 x 38.7 inches
Based on the primordial purusha-prakriti concept of cosmic creation, the geometrical and calligraphic forms in this painting by the neo-tantra pioneer, G. R. Santosh, fuse the sexual and spiritual to intersperse the human and divine experience, located within the body of the seated goddess. This meditative form is devoid of its physical weight and sensuousness. It echoes with a feminine divine energy through the harmonious symmetry and symphony of colours and abstracted geometric shapes as codified by tantra texts, particularly of Kashmiri Shaivism that he followed.
This stunning artwork is part of our upcoming auction in Mumbai on the 24th of April.
