Krishna Journal

This fabric-cover journal features artwork from a 19th century painting of the Hindru god Krishna as an infant that is found in the Asian Art Museum's collection. The painting is done in the Tanjore style. Tanjore is a classical South Indian painting style, which was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur. Tanjore paintings are characterised by rich, flat and vivid colors, simple iconic composition, glittering gold foils overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and pieces or very rarely precious and semi-precious gems. In Thanjavur paintings one can see the influence of Deccani, Vijayanagar, Maratha and even European styles of painting.
