Indian art has passed through various phases of transition. In the process, there evolved diverse art styles and thus distinctive schools. Patronage changed hands from the traders to feudal to emperors. Thus, not only did each school acquire a stylistic distinction of its own, but with the change of patron, the painting style of the same school showed different trends.

A small child belonging to a wealthy family sits with fruits in his lap. This seems to be a commissioned picture where the proud parents wanted a portrait of the child. A rich cap covers his head and he wears a yellow dress, tied at the waist and green tight trousers. The flat features and chubby cheeks give the child a heightened sense of innocence, and the figure seems to come alive.

A lot of shading is done to achieve the effect of folds in the clothes. The tonality of the vibrant and warm colours, particularly the yellow and orange, are scintillating. They are applied in a flat manner as is the background in flat deep green. It is plain and kept so for reasons best known to the artist. A natural background would have added effect and liveliness to the portrait. The fruit seems superficially placed in the lap. In fact, most things in this painting are depicted in a rather stiff and naive manner.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
