Depiction of feminine beauty in various moods and forms is a contribution of the Bundi style. The woman with all her devotion and emotional intensity is fully reflected in this painting. The artist has represented every turn of her head, every gesture of her hands, and every curve of her body. To him, woman is the most charming creation of God.

Playing the veena, a near perfect example of visual expression to the things which convey hidden feelings. The lady kneels next to a huge bolster playing the instrument. She has a short slender body, a delicate face with a broad forehead, arched eyebrows and almond shaped eyes. Receding chin, as in this miniature, is to be found in the portraits of women painted in the Bundi style. No part of her body is bereft of ornamentation. Her arms are smooth and delicate and her tapering fingers deftly fall over the strings of the bird shaped veena which ends in a stylized leaf. The turning knobs of the veena are strategically placed.

The ground is lightly defined with thin horizontal registers in a wash of green against which precisely painted little tufts of grass are placed. The backgrounds is bare, unstated and the space is left untouched. The maturity and refinement of the line represents the high renaissance of the Bundi School. The color orchestration is subtle. Instead of a very bright spectrum, we get tonalities with restrained use of colored areas. Its composition is remarkable and its execution perfect. The miniature speaks volumes for the style of the school and talent of the artist.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
