Jehangir Nicholson Memorial Lecture

Lecture by Gulam Mohammad Sheikh

In his lecture, Gulam Mohammed Sheikh discusses the question of how crucial the identity of the artist of pre-modern India is to the study of Indian art history. Who were these artists, believed to be anonymous by choice? Or were they obscured from revealing their identity? How do we read images to reconstruct the identity of the makers of these images?
