King Kamsa in his inner Apartments: Great Indian Paintings

 

This intricate work of art is part of dispersed Bhagvata-Purana series.

Made during the 17th century, this painting was most likely done at Mandi, evident from the Pahari style used in the painting. King Kamsa is sitting in his inner apartment, conversing with an old lady, possibly about the Devaki and the coming child.

Marble floors, richly adorned decorative walls, fountains, etc. give the richness to the painting.
