Are you interested in Indian painting and culture? Have you always wanted to understand and identify Indian visual elements in Indian miniatures and folk art?  If so this course will certainly appeal to you.

Indian painting has a very long tradition and history.  This course will introduce you to the rich cultural heritage of India as seen through Indian miniatures, fesco (Ajanta), folk and tribal art.  We will first study the impact of religion on Indian painting and the iconography of the principal Indian gods and goddesses.  We will then talk about the history of Indian painting in different regions of India.  We are confident that after this course whenever you see an Indian painting, you will be able to identify it and appreciate it more!
