Bahu Masters (active ca. 1680ca. 1720), King Dasaratha and His Retinue Proceed to Rama's Wedding: Folio from the Shangri II Ramayana Series, ca. 16901710

Our vibrant digital print was reproduced from a folio in the Ramayana, one of the great epic narratives of South Asian literature. The beautifully painted scene depicts King Dasaratha surrounded by his army, traveling to the court of King Janaka in preparation for the weddings of his four sons. The Ramayana tells us that they carried a wealth of gems as wedding gifts.

This folio was likely painted at the court of Jammu or possibly Basohli, whence the style derives. The robust yellow ground is a hallmark of this series. The Bahu Masters were active at the court of Bahu, located near Jammu in the Pahari region of India, and were possibly a father and son or two brothers.
