Mother Yashoda and Krishna by Jamini Roy. "Bal Krishna and Yashoda" is a famous painting by the Indian Modernist Jamini Roy depicting a famous scene from the Hindu God Krishna's childhood. Here, Yashoda, Krishna's mother is making butter in the traditional way while Krishna is seen asking to have some butter.Roy used bold, sweeping brushstrokes while painting and restricted his palette to seven vibrant and earthy colours – Indian red, yellow ochre, cadmium green, vermillion, grey, blue and white. Roy's rejection of the then modern style of painting and his foray into the realm of Bengali folk paintings marked a new beginning in the history of Indian modern art.
