The Blanton Museum presents "Epic Tales from Ancient India: Paintings from The San Diego Museum of Art" opening day
"Epic Tales from Ancient India: Paintings from The San Diego Museum of Art" is one of the Blanton’s two major summer exhibitions. Blanton will introduce viewers to epic stories that originated in Ancient India and continue to hold great cultural value around the world.
The works in this exhibition portray scenes of abduction, betrayal, and heroic battles amidst larger-than-life stories depicted with the miniaturist’s delicacy of touch and vibrant colors. This exhibition is drawn from The San Diego Museum of Art's renowned collection of Indian paintings.
Intended for viewers of all ages, the images provide a compelling introduction to classic Indian and Persian texts Ramayana, Bhagavata Purana, Ragamala, and the Persian Book of Kings, Shahnameh.
