Manaku: A Guler Painter Painters of the Pahari Schools, edited by Vishwa Chander Ohri and Roy C. Craven, Jr,

Title:Manaku: A Guler Painter Painters of the Pahari Schools, edited by Vishwa Chander Ohri and Roy C. Craven, Jr,
Author:Craven Jr., Roy C.
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 50-1, p. 46-67
Abstract:The painter Manaku is seen as having been central to the development of the Pahari style of painting at Haripur/Guler during the second quarter of the 18th century. Son of the illustrious Pandit Seu, Manaku's name is prominently mentioned in the colophon of the renowned illustrated Basohli manuscript of the Gita-Govinda. Scholars such as B.N.Goswamy, Karl Khandalavala, and W.G. Archer propose several different dates related to this painter's life and work, considered in the light of varying data. They are unanimous, though, in concluding that Manaku was a most impressive and innovative artist whose works delight viewers by their inventive imagery and finished technique. He is credited with significantly contributing to the Bhagavata Purana manuscript of 1740.
