Love

I am still in the process of doing 18th/19th cent style posts on tumblr. Before I compile it into a master post, a mid 18th century, Basholi painting of a couple feeding deer.

Miniature paintings often feature women of varying complexions. Yet it is still rare to find the woman to be darker hued in paintings featuring couples.

I should have probably posted this 19/4 since it was likely the day once dedicated to the festival of Kama.
