Cotton weavers of south India

Here we see a painting of a family of weavers from Tanjore, south India. This painting style relates well with the album of professions and castes in the ACM's collection. The figures of the women and men seen individually evoke stylistic similarity with the potter and dhobi paintings discussed in this catalogue.
