The Mahabharata: Mewari miniature paintings (1680-1698), by Allah Baksh, 4 vols. (in box), English text by Alok Bhalla, Hindi text by Chandra Prakash Deval colophon in Mewari

₹ 12000.00

Allah Baksh's magnificent miniature paintings of Vyasa's great epic, the Mahabharata, were commissioned by Udaipur's Maharana Jai Singh and painted between 1680 and 1698. The selection of nearly 2000 paintings, published in four volumes, are from a folio of more than 4000 extant works illuminating the Mahabharata. These radiant miniatures, which follow almost every story in every chapter of the Mahabharata, have no precedent in India's art tradition. Allah Baksh's art of visionary thoughtfulness deserves an honoured place in the great library of Indian scriptures and their visual interpretations.
