Krishna As Shrinathji Rajasthani Paintings from Nathdvara

Ahmedabad: Mapin Publishing, 1995. 4to (30x22cm), 176pp, 126 colour photographs, map, glossary and bibliography, in original hard binding with dust jacket, good condition.

In the 15th century, perhaps as a reaction to the increasingly ascetic direction in which Hinduism was going, there was born in Vraja, in North India, a new offset of Krishna worship called Pushti Marga, the Path of Grace.

The founder, Vallabhacharya, stressed worship through the joys of life and living, and devotion to Krishna as the royal child Shrinathji through song, dance, dress, decoration and painting. The Paintings constitute the Nathdvara school so named because the image of Shrinathji is enshrined in a temple in Nathdvara, Rajasthan.

With over 120 colour reproductions, this book is the first major work on the subject. Says the well-known art historian Ratan Parimoo, "The books is a valuable study of a sub-school of Rajasthani painting linking it with other Indian styles of painting from the British Colonial period. Till now this school had only been associated with pichhvais on attention to the exquisite miniatures on paper in their true religious context."
