The Birds of India

The late 18th and early 19th centuries saw a flowering of Company Paintings that combined the delicacy and detail of Mughal atelier-trained artists with the refinement and rationalisation of European art. The result was the creation of a hybrid Indian art of exceptional beauty, a style unique to the Indian subcontinent whose patronage was almost entirely British. Such a comprehensive and overarching study of birds through Company Paintings has been undertaken for the first time, making this a pioneering exhibition in the evolving study of Indian art history undertaken by DAG.
