Radha and Krishna are usually depicted as a pair of youthful lovers stealing away into the woods of Vrindavan. However, in the painting that you see on this page, they have a boat to themselves in which to make the most of each other’s company. A multitude of pale pink lotuses are blooming in the calm blue waters; pristine marble palaces and green, rugged hills are in the background. It is a lively, festive night. The sun has barely set in the skies, as could be gleaned from the tints of washed-out gold betwixt the hills in the distance. A plethora of boats are floating about in the water body, but none as richly bedecked as the one that dominates the fabric-based canvas.
