Miniature Worlds: The Art of IndiaFebruary 22 - June 5, 2005
Indian paintings savor all aspects of life. They offer matter-of-fact observations of everyday activities and the natural world, express the subtleties of human love, evoke musical melodies, and recount legendary exploits of heroes and gods.
Miniature Worlds: The Art of India presents a selection of Indian paintings and thematically related votive sculptures from the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Massachusetts, which assembled its collection in the 1960s, when Indian painting was still little known in the West.
Representing most of the major genres and schools of painting, these objects will be complemented by works borrowed from private collections and drawn from the Fleming Museum's collection, including two large cloth paintings used in popular storytelling and ritual worship.
