A medieval Indian lady is sitting in the balcony reading a book. She is a mischievous young soul, sitting on the wrong side atop the railing and directing at the painter with an all-knowing gaze. She has snapped her book shut - it is by Veda Vyasa, something she is clearly not in the mood for - and instead has picked up a little pink flower to amuse herself with. She is surrounded by the gorgeousness of nature, and one cannot really blame her young soul for wanting to revel in it instead of peering into a book.
Indeed she completes that picture of gorgeousness herself. Thick black hair tied back with gold ornaments, which match the brocade of her silk lehenga. It is a deep blue colour that sits well against her smooth, fair skin. As could be gleaned from the background, it is a hot day, so she has let the dupatta slide off her, letting the sun kiss the exposed parts of her body.
This contemporary work of art has been made by Anup Gomay in the most sought after styles managing its beauty that has reached the pioneer of Indian oil paintings. Each of the handpicked oils in our collection are chosen for their workmanship and treatment of the subject. This one seems to be telling the unassuming story of a quiet afternoon.
