I am trying to locate the source of an image that appears on the back dust cover of my copy of The Spirit of Indian Painting (Goswamy): I couldn't find a credit for this image in the Goswamy text. It is very tiny on the back cover. On a Google reverse image search, only a few rug advertisements came up. I could recreate and work out my design idea from its layout, but I always like to reference my sources. Is anyone familiar with this type of image, and where do you suggest I look to find out more?
I had an idea that I floated at this month's workshop, thoroughly inspired by Vaishali's "Carpet Pages IV" project---why don't we students try on the different roles of miniature painting apprentices, mailing the work to the next artist after each round? One of us can draw/trace an outline, the next person can gild, the next can color fill and burnish, then someone can work on pardakht, and then another person can do the final outline, and maybe another person can do the borders....and we can share the whole process here on the forum/instagram/wherever else we'd like!
What do you all think? tagging people i know on here but this could be open to anyone who would like to join:
@Alison Guest @Amélie Couvrat Desvergnes @Anastasia Doran @Ary Nassiri @Bonny W @Cécilia Duminuco @Dominique Fayad @Fatma Gadhoumi @Geeta @Genève @Karima Cammell @Mary Yaeger @Nadia Bouhdili @Pranav Prakash @rehana.sulaiman @safar04 @Sara @Sharmina Haq @Sheetle Shah @Yasmin Solomon
If you like the idea, please reply with a picture you'd like us to apprentice on together. or perhaps we could get @Vaishali Prazmari to assign us one and make it a new course offering....
