Blow O wind to where my loved one is: Indian Miniatures from the Collection of Timpy Aulakh
July 24, 2010 - September 19, 2010
These exquisite jewel-like paintings reflect the masterful and intricate craftsmanship of Indian artists who gained prominence in the 11th and 12th century when painters starting creating manuscripts to store valuable knowledge using palm leaves. Complimented with 18th- and 19th-century bronze sculptures of Hindu Deities, these works set up a cultural dialogue between themselves and the paintings of Jeet Aulakh.
