Splendid Land: Paintings from Royal Udaipur

Around 1700, artists in Udaipur (a court in northwest India) started to create highly detailed paintings expressing scenes and moods (bhava) of the city’s palaces, lakes, and mountains. These large works and their emphasis on lived experience represented a new direction in Indian painting and reveal the environmental, political, and emotional contexts in which the new art form emerged. They also highlight the unique visual strategies artists developed to communicate emotions, depict places, and celebrate water resources. National Museum of Asian Art docent, Lisa Sockett, will lead the program, which is hosted by the North Bethesda Village.
