For Asian Art in London 2018 , Rob Dean Art will be exhibiting a group of Classical Indian Paintings from the Court of Mandi . The exhibition highlights the changing styles and aesthetic that existed within the court of Mandi over a two hundred year period. These 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, included in the current exhibition are two rare works which are inscribed on the reverse, and specifically identify the artists who produced the works. The exhibition thus brings to light two previously unpublished works by the Mandi Artists , Sajnu and Mohammadi, and extends our understanding of the influence of these artists at the Mandi court atelier in the early 19th century.
