The Many Faces of an Ideal

Women in Indian Paintings
  • 23 May – 17 September 2017

    The exhibition at Park-Villa Rieter features around sixty miniatures on the theme of ‘Women in Indian Painting’. Dating from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries, they originate from various workshops at locations ranging from the foothills of the Himalayas to the Deccan plateau.

    Indian painters portrayed their female subjects with great attention to detail, dressing them in magnificent robes and endowing them with delicate features. More than taken from real life, these women represent beauty ideals.

    Parallel to this the theme of ‘Women in Art’ also features in the museum’s rooms of Japanese and Chinese painting as well as in the Africa collection in the ‘Emerald’ extension.
