This painting, rendered using Pahari art style as prevailed around the first-second decades of the nineteenth century at Garhwal and other hill states influenced by Kangra art-idiom, is outstanding in delineating strong features of both Radha and Krishna, especially the emotionally charged eyes. A partner on equal footing, Radha carries a ‘vina’ – stringed instrument, for accompanying Krishna when he plays on his flute. They are seated on a full blown double lotus laid over the milky waters of the ocean. The ocean-part around them has lotuses – plants and flowers, scattered all over. In distant background there is a mountain range, typical of Pahari artists and beyond it a clear light blue sky.
