Bhakti, Beauty and Bloodshed in Indian Court Painting

11 - 13 Apr '18 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm

Private Collection

From extensive illustrated manuscripts to singular, oversized contextual portraits, this seminar series will explore paintings produced at the Rajput and Central Indian courts during the early modern period. The many formats and sizes of paintings and books will be introduced, alongside the materials used to make folios, colours and brushes, and the various people and stories depicted therein. The afterlife of these works, resulting from such processes as copying and reuse will also be discussed as well as the context in which such works were produced and circulated.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students with a valid student ID receive a 50% concession.

Mellon—Anne d’Harnoncourt Postdoctoral Fellow in South Asian Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and has recently been appointed Curator at The City Palace Museum, Udaipur.
