Elisabetta Marabotto of Saffronart suggests a visit to ‘Strange and Wondrous: Prints of India from the Robert J. Del Bonta Collection’ at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington
London: Save the date for Arthur M. Sackler Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition in Washington: ‘Strange and Wondrous: Prints of India from the Robert J. Del Bonta Collection’.
The exhibition opens October 19 and runs until February 2014. The fifty artworks on display, which belong to the Robert J. Del Bontà Collection, include lithographs, engravings, aquatints and other prints illustrating sixteenth to twentieth century India through western eyes.
These artworks were made by merchants, soldiers, missionaries and other people who traveled to India and documented their stays there. These prints, being easily reproduced and widely circulated, spread knowledge as well as misconceptions about India.
Below you can enjoy a sneak peek of the collection’s highlights.
