In art, Krishna, which literally means "black" or "dark as a cloud," is usually portrayed with blue-black skin. As a youth, he appears as the divine lover surrounded by adoring gopis, or female cowherds. Although Krishna's favorite of his many lovers was the beautiful gopi Radha, he was frequently careless of her affections. This image probably refers to a specific episode in their relationship: Radha, jealous of Krishna's attentions to other gopis, refuses to rejoin him in the forest. Krishna in turn makes an impassioned plea to Radha's friend, who intervenes and encourages their reunion. The cult of Krishna held as a distinctive trait the exploration of divine and human love. In literature and myth, his youthful flirtations with the gopis are interpreted as symbolic of the loving interplay between God and the human soul.

The image in this Tanjore painting is that of Vishnu, one of the three major gods of the Hindu pantheon, is the preserver of creation who often comes to earth as a man when good and evil are out of balance. Historic Tanjore painting bears several unmistakable traits that distinguish it from other Indian painting. Key characteristics include a larger than life god figure with a perfect round head and almond eyes; a bold color palette, often with a red background; and columns or curtains used as a framing device. These sacred paintings also have a three-dimensional surface covered with gold leaf and embossed with precious stones, glass, or metal. The result shines with a depth and richness worthy of the gods they denote. [Gallery label text, 5/27/10]", "Dedication" : "Estates of Maurice R. and Maxine B.
