Court Paintings of Royal India: The Connecting World of Hindus and Muslims with Dr. Vishakha N. Desai, Columbia University

April 23, 2015 - 07:00 pm to 08:00 pm

The seventeenth century is often considered the golden age of Indian court painting when large and small Muslim and Hindu courts commissioned richly illustrated manuscripts and elaborate royal portraits and palace scenes. Using some examples from the renowned permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum, this illustrated lecture will highlight the complex interaction between Mughal and Rajput rulers and courtiers to better understand the syncretic nature of pre-modern, pre-colonial Indian society. This lecture is sponsored by The Cincinnati Asian Art Society.
