Literature

Hugo E. Kreijger, Kathmandu Valley Painting, The Jucker Collection, Boston, 1999, p. 58, no. 16.

Catalogue Note

Seventeenth and eighteenth century Rajput paintings have influenced the style of the narrative scenes surrounding the shrine, evident in the mannered gestures of the turbaned figures and domed palace roofs. Compare the mountain design dividing the narrative scenes in a Vishnu Temple paubha, dated 1681, now in the Prince of Wales Museum, Mumbai; see Pal, 1978, pl. 115.
