说明 Oscar Leneman Collection
Acquired 1978
Opaque watercolor with ink on paper
India, Rajasthan or Gujarat, early 17th Century
Vishnu reclines on the multi-headed serpent Shesha in the Cosmic Ocean as the Goddess Lakshmi caresses his foot. The God Brahma emerges on a lotus from Vishnu’s navel. The asuras (demons) Madhu and Kaitabha emerge to threaten Brahma. Brahma implores that Vishnu rise from his meditative yogic sleep for protection as Vishnu awakens to battle.
A lively folio from an early dispersed Devi Mahatmya Series ("The Hymn of the Great Goddess" as narrated by the Sage Markandeya) and executed in an early "popular" manner on a coarse natural-leaf paper, which is not dissimilar from the porous paper of the famous "Palam" Bhagavata Purana of 1530-40. Its palette, naive fish-shaped black outlined eye, flattened heads and angular clothing details, all suggest a connection to the earlier pre-Mughal Chaurapanchasika-related manner. The present series has previously been dated, although somewhat broadly by scholars, to the first half of the Seventeenth Century.
For another folio from this significant dispersed series see The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, accession no. 1977.440.16.
