The Gita: Mewari miniature painting (1680-1698), by Allah Baksh
Bhalla, Alok et al.
The miniature paintings of the Gita by Allah Baksh, published for the first time, are from the late 17th century Mewar. Commissioned by Udaipur's Maharana Jai Singh, these paintings of the Gita are part of an illustrated Mahaharata folio of more than 4,000 words. Allah Baksh's luminous work on the Gita has no precedent in India's art tradition. He has illustrated Krishna's ecstatic song, verse by abstract verse.
