Diverse painting styles of Persian miniatures, Mughal painting, Rajasthani painting, and modern Indian art are some of the works we will investigate during this four-week class. The influence of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam on the architecture of the region is also on the agenda. We will take a look at the timeless wonders of the caves at Ajanta, architectural sculpture at Khajuraho, and witness the creative beauty of Angkor Wat. The study of Indian art is incomplete without the mystical achievement of the Taj Mahal. Altogether, the course will be a feast for the heart, mind, and soul! Register in person at the library. Class fee is payable at registration.
