Krishna awaiting Radha's arrival

This Indian miniature Pahari painting executed in the Basohli style illustrates a verse from Jayadeva’s Gita Govinda depicting Krishna’s anguish at Radha’s absence. Krishna, who is yearning for Radha’s nearness is seated on the bank of the river Yamuna, beside a bed of leaves, anxiously awaiting Radha’s arrival. This exquisite painting from India is a fine example of Basohli art.
