Krishna – painting on ivory – Collection of Anthony Sargeant


Typically Krishna is shown in this Indian miniature painting on ivory playing his flute. It is difficult to reproduce since it is in a glazed frame.

Bought on impulse at a provincial auction in Shropshire – probably at about its market price – nevertheless an  interesting object and moreover a learning experience.

These paintings were produced using single hair brushes – incredibly delicate and fine.

Difficult to resist – especially since one was taking a risk in area in which I had no real experience – relying partly on – well I haven’t seen anything quite like this before and it looks interesting. so buy it!
