Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Mr. Nawab Ameer Temour.

    Themetically and stylistically, this work is directly inspired by Indian miniature painting. Its palette, too, derives itself from the artist's Mughal forebears.

    After the unbearable heat of the sub-continental summer, the arrival of the monsoon is a heavenly boon. Come the evening when a cool breeze manifests itself, it is sheer bliss to sit on an open terrace or under a colourful awning and hear the koel coo in the trees or see a peacock dance in a nearby verdurous glade.

    Two women sit here under a tent, enjoying the divine hour. The older one of the two has golden hair. She is a lady of substance. She is listening raptly to her younger companion who is gesticulating vigorously with her delicate hands to bring her story to life. Simply put, this painting exudes the charm typical of Mughal painting wherein every little aspect of life can assume a poetic dimension.
