This Sikh painting of Guru Nanak (1469-1539), the founder of the Sikh faith, will make an impressive addition and provide a noble impression to your cherished art collection.
This is a celebratory painting depicting Guru Nanak being approached by disciples of Jogi Balnath.
Jogi is a colloquial term for the “yogi”, which refers to the people who practiced Yoga as part of their daily rituals. Over the time, this led to the formation of a community, and subsequently was formed into a caste.
The scene is placed within a conventional natural setting. It shows two jogis approach Guru Nanak with folded hands, as if asking to be accepted as disciples. Mardana, the Guru’s life long companion, plays upon his instrument and a close follower watches with deep interest.
With its soft coloring and clean, crisp lines, the painting is filled with delicate touches. This is no routine work but one done with great feeling.
The meticulousness in this drawing is exquisitely captured with an antique finish.
The original art was done in the pahari style in the family workshop of Nainsukh of Guler in late 18th century India and currently resides in the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarh, India.
