Pictures and paintings of the wonderful Taj are commonplace, but then we are talking about the frontal view. The artist here deviates and reduces Taj to a sub-theme. He takes a distant perspective, capturing the arches and the domes of the Masjid, not to miss the fin inlay work, which he must have achieved with deft strokes of a single haired brush.
The Taj in the distance has the unequalled beauty that most paintings speak of the beauty of architecture and glam of pure marble brought out cleverly. If the Musjid seem austere and impersonal, then the Taj radiates with the warmth and love the emperor felt for his beloved.
The clear sky in soft blue hues, bearing patches of white clouds, unsuccessfully tries to compete with the purity of the white marbled Taj. The vast expanse is furthered by the tiny human figures, painted purely for the sake of proportion and depicting a scale ratio.
