    Artwork : Dancing Villagers, attributed to Pandit Seu (Guler) | 1680-1740 | LACMA

    “This painting depicting seven men dancing with abandon to the tune of four musicians is remarkable for its unusual subject matter as well as its refined execution, lively portrayal of human form, and sensitive attention to portrait features. The painting is probably by Pandit Seu, an artist from Guler who is credited with introducing a more naturalistic approach to painting in the hill states. His highly individualized figures are accentuated by a monochromatic background typical of indigenous painting traditions throughout northern India. A traditional interest in rhythmic forms and lines is evident in the varied postures and flowing garments of his dancers.” – LACMA
