This lot presents a lithograph depicting Ram and Sita on a throne surrounded by God Shiva, Ganesh, Hanuman, Lakshman and more. It is created by artist Lakshmilal Nandlal of Nathdwara and published by S.S. Brijbasi and Sons in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh.
'From the 1930s through the 1950s, the most successful and influential publisher of god-prints was S.S. Brijbasi and Sons, founded by two brothers, Shrinathdasji and Shyamsunderlal Brijbasi. The brothers, who owned a picture-framing shop in Karachi made their foray into publishing when they began producing prints of the Hindu deities based on oil paintings done by artists from Nathdwara (like Khubiram Gopilal and Lakshmilal Nandlal). The Brijabasi brothers' work with painters from the pilgrimage town of Nathadwara set a whole new direction in the popular representation of the Hindu gods. Located initially in Karachi, they moved to Mathura in 1939'.
