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 from the Janamsakhi series depicting Guru Nanak and his encounter with a young man and who is also the Guru's devotee. Dinanath, a Dayal Khatri, only 15 years of age, is seen bathing in ice-cold water from a cistern, and reciting the sacred prayers.
The Guru is seen commenting to his life long companions, Bhai Bala and Mardana, that such a person would receive nectar at God's door, and be blended with Him.
The painted scene is lively and impressive. The coloring, especially in the use of lilacs and whites, is delicate. The small clump of trees, with a flowering branch peeking through the thick foliage and the creeper winding round the trunk of the tree, is reminiscent of the meaningful ways in which the painters of that time brought such details into their work.
The meticulousness in this modern artwork 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.
