Evoking the Gods: Indian Painting of the Pahari Hills

In the foothills of the Himalayas, a series of innovative and vibrant painting styles emerged between the seventeenth and early nineteenth centuries to depict the Hindu gods. In these diverse paintings, royal patrons attempted to forge personal connections to the divine through the creative use of epic narratives and devotional images that present god as a child, a lover, or as a terrible protector.

Tickets include same-day Museum admission.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Seeing the Divine: Pahari Painting of North India.
