Sharon Horvath on Badal Mahal of Bundi Palace
A small painting: 12 inches wide by 16 inches high. Thin, lightly touched scrapes and dabs of paint in ochres, viridian greens, and a flurry of blues.
Barbara Takenaga on a Rajasthan Manuscript Page
I love this image. And have for many years. Actually, it’s less about one painting and more about a book of images. I chose this one at random.
Sarah Walker on Shiva Vishvarupa
Before I can grasp it with my mind, this painting has already saturated and immobilized me. What am I looking at? Not so much a painting as a force.
