DESCRIPTION

Indian Miniature Painting

February 24 – May 16, 2010
In the Focus Gallery

As a companion exhibition to Beyond the Page: Contemporary Pakistani Art, the museum will display a range of classical miniature painting from its collection to connect visitors to this centuries-old artistic tradition in South Asia. The exhibition will focus on three genres in miniatures, Power, Pantheon and Portraiture, depicting images of rulers, deities and individuals. The conversation between these classical examples and the contemporary manifestations in Beyond the Page will engender a more complete understanding of the continuum between tradition and contemporary culture.
