Painting is a way of exploring the external world, the reality of which is momentarily unquestioned. The epics and Sanskrit classics provide the artists various themes to draw from.

The painted narrative takes place in a hermitage where Dushyanta in the guise of a hermit draws Shakuntala closer. Shakuntala, on her part is coy and tries to resist his advances. The artist has used a tall, muscular, bearded and mustachioed youthful type with a romantic posture to fit the image of the hero. He has not taken the help of diaphanous clothes or bare skin to play upon the sensuality and fullness of the heroine's body. The tactile gloss of her costume and jewellery is eye-catching.

The painting is expressive and emotive at the same time. The tenderness on the man's face is so real, as is the desire, yet restraint on the woman's face. The gestures reflect the same emotion in a louder tone.

The artist has contemporarized the traditional folklore, especially in terms of colour palette.

The background constitutes an important aspect of the composition. The bamboo grove is full of mild diffused illumination and hazy vibrant foliage and the figures do not stand isolated from their surroundings.

  • I agree with Prathima. This painting is not of Dushanta and Shakuntala.
    by Prem Singh on 7th Oct 2005
  • Sorry, I may not be correct.

    The description of this painting is very beautiful, but this painting is no of Dushyanta and Shakuntala...as far as I know this painting is of (Mahabharatha) Arjuna disguised as hermit to meet his lover Subadhra. (Unknowing the fact that Arjuna has disguised himself as sadhu, Subadhra would have been appointed to take care of sadhu (Arjuna) who is disguised as sadhu. Arjuna one day reveals the secret to Subdhara and expresses his love to Subdhra who also agress to him that she is also in love with him). Please verify :-)

    As far as I know Shakunthala's story, Dushantha will never come to shakunthala disguised as hermit to meet shakunthala and shakuntha never dresses herself as the above picture until she goes to meet Dushantha in his palace. She is always decorated with flowers in the forest (also while she is with her lover Dushantha in the forest).

    NOTE: Please reply after verifying.

    Regards
    Prathima.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
