Illustration to a Rasikapriya series: Krishna eavesdrops on Radha and her confidant
Kangra, circa 1810
Opaque watercolor and gold on paper; unaware of the presence of her beloved, Radha and her confidant are deep in discussion within an open terrace at the edge of a garden. Krishna is set behind the low garden wall resting on his golden staff and draped in a gilt-lined mauve cloak.
