'The Pride of India Collection - Radha
The Timeless Art
Gold Layeres Silver Stamp Ingot
In 1952, by sheer chance, a bundle of paintings wrapped in cloth were found dumped in the corner of an old fort in Kishangarh. On inspection they turned out to be one of the great treasures of Indian art, the Kishangarh miniatures, inspired by the divine lovers Radha and Krishna, and lost to the world for over 200 years. Flawless artistry, spiritual yearning, and eternal love and devotion all combine in the sublime
mysticism of the Kishangarh school of art. It is recognized as the very pinnacle of the vast scope of Indian art and acclaimed by connoisseurs around the world.
In 1778 the great exponent of the art of miniature painting, Nihal Chand, created the
legendary face of the Kishangarh Radha, the quintessence of Indian womanhood and grace.
