Event excerpt

Curated by the late Kavita Singh and Parul Singh, the exhibition showcases the Indian painting tradition from the nineteenth century and focuses on “Kanchana Chitra Ramayana,” a lavishly illustrated manuscript created for the royal court of Banaras between 1796 and 1814. The name “Kanchana” signifies the abundant use of gold paint, while “Chitra” underscores the importance of paintings, with about 548 accompanying text pages. The exhibition brings together around eighty pages from this manuscript, exploring its historical context, diverse artists, and creative narratives in this monumental artistic endeavour.
