Family Ties – The Indian Painters Manaku and Nainsukh

  • 4 October 2018 – 17 February 2019

    Among the Museum Rietberg’s many treasures, the collection of historical miniature paintings from India is of special significance. Now, for the first time, the exhibition 'Family Ties – The Indian Painters Manaku and Nainsukh' examines the oeuvre of two legendary artist brothers by way of comparison. 
    The artist family from Guler in the Pahari region of the Himalayas heralded a turn in Indian painting in the second half of the 18th century. Manaku captured mythical tales on paper with the aid of colour and imagination, while his younger brother Nainsukh relied on refinement and sensitivity to shed an intimate light on life at a raja’s court and portray the many different figures encountered there. The Museum Rietberg holds a worldwide unique collection of miniatures by the family from Guler.
