Radha Krishna Painting by Samundra Man Singh Shrestra
An original oil painting of Radha Krishna by Samundra Man Singh Shrestra. The inspired painting of a very traditional subject matter portrays Lord Krishna with his favorite gopi, Radha in a lush fertile garden with bright sunny yellows and oranges. The two peacocks wandering in the garden and waterfall in the far background complete the richness of this gorgeous image.
Samundra Man Singh Shrestra is a well-known Paubha (thangka) painter. As the Museum of Nepali Art describes him,
“Shrestha’s work skillfully combines his inspiration and mastery of the traditional Newar style of painting with conceptual contemporaneity—with binaries and juxtaposition of past and present, modern and traditional, and the aesthetic with pure conception. His innovative works push the boundaries of the sacred and secular, by challenging the very categories of contemporary and traditional art. His art works are deeply rooted in the sacred knowledge of iconography of deities. He has received significant national and international awards, and his work is in major collection of India, UK, US, Europe, and East Asia.”
The painting has been professionally mounted, matted in orange linen and brown silk in a golden wood frame with museum conservation glass.
