Radha & Krishna - PrintASIAN ART MUSEUM
Krishna is the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu and is also worshiped as the supreme god in his own right. He is the god of compassion, tenderness and love in Hinduism.
Notice that in more traditional paintings, Krishna and his consort Radha are depicted facing one another; it is unusual, even revolutionary, for this artist to show them facing forward, toward the viewer, on equal ground.
About the Mithila Institute: Founded in 2003 in Madhubani, Bihar, the center of the ancient Indian Mithila painting tradition, the Mithila Art Institute focuses on developing the aritstic skills of the next generation of Mithila painters. The Institute focuses on developing the talent of students regardless of their social or economic background and encourages them to explore their own experiences through their paintings.
