Untitled (Rama Durbar)
17.7 x 11.2 inch (h x w)
Engraving
Water colour and colloidal tin on paper

The Rama Durbar is a pan-Indian iconography that has been historically mass-produced in prints and drawings, as well as worked on later by recognised modern painters. In Bengal, Rama is recognised more as a fair ruler than a divine figure and this pat echoes that sentiment. The human figures are dressed in the garb of the royal court (Sita’s saree is in accordance with the norms of the Brahmo Samaj), while Hanuman is reduced to an actual monkey. This painting makes use of stamped outline, instead of being hand-drawn.
