Radha Krishna: Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
The painting depicts Radha and Krishna in a natural setting. Krishna is playing his flute, while Radha is sitting mesmerised, listening to him play. She has even brought some Makhan for Krishna, the embroidery of which matches Radha’s dress. The painting is done in a typical folk style and has a plain background which focuses all our attention on the divine couple.
Historically, Kalamkaris used to be known as Pattachitras, an art form still found in neighboring Odisha and other parts of India and Nepal. The term "Pattachitra" translates to "patta", meaning "cloth", with "chitra" meaning "picture".Paintings made on fabric and fabric scrolls are mentioned in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain literature. Under medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari was derived from the words "kalam", which means "pen" in Telugu, and "kari", which means craftmanship. This became popular under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate
