Gods, Kings and Courtiers : Asian Art in London

22 - 30 October 2020
Overview

As part of Asian Art in London 2020, Rob Dean Art will exhibit a group of classical Indian paintings from the Pahari region of Northern India,  with a smaller group of paintings from other schools, and areas of the subcontinent.  The exhibition highlights the changing styles and aesthetic that existed in painting ateliers over a three hundred year period.  The works reveal a constant evolution of styles and formats that depended upon both the whims of patrons, and the personal genius of individual artists based at the court.  Paintings from this period tended to be produced anonymously, leaving the attribution of specific artists to paintings, a matter of academic debate. However a highlight of the current exhibition is a rare large format work by the Master Artist Sajnu working at the court of Mandi in the early 19th century.
