Event description

Description

China has an illustrious tradition of landscape painting. In contrast, Indian art focuses largely on the body. In this talk, Dr. Diamond presents a striking exception to this rule: the unique landscape and palace-scape painting tradition that flourished in an eighteenth-century Indian court. In Udaipur, the capital of a kingdom in northwest India, artists created large paintings of place on paper and cloth that celebrated palace, city and countryside. Their goal was to evoke bhava, the multi-sensorial experience of being in a particular place at a specific time.

Debra Diamond is Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art at the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Smithsonian Institution. She received her PhD with distinction from Columbia University in 2000.
