This wonderful Rajasthani reverse glass painting boasts strikingly bold colours and stunning clarity. The fantastic use of patterning and flat areas of block colour recall other Indian pictoral traditions such as the miniature. In the age-old art of reverse glass painting, an image is laid down on the back of the glass before water or gum arabic paints are applied. Indian glass paintings frequently celebrate traditional themes including classical pastimes, portraits of popular Maharajahs, mythological figures, epic themes, icons and ornamental themes from nature.
