Folio from an Usha-Aniruddha Romance series Garhwal, circa 1840 Opaque watercolor heightened with gold on paper 9 x 12 in. (22.9 x 30.5 cm.)
Usha, daughter of Vana, King of the Daityas had a dream of a wonderfully handsome prince with whom she instantly fell in love. Chitralekha, Usha’s friend aided her in drawing portraits of all the princes until Usha recognized Aniruddha, grandson of Krishna. At her behest Chitralekha proceeds to Dwarka to bring Aniruddha back to Usha’s kingdom.
Here we see Usha coming upon Aniruddha in his princely chamber and after awaking he explains that he too has had a similar dream of a beautiful princess and accompanies Chitralekha to Usha. A great battle ensues because of the dream crossed lovers.
