‘Euro-Indian Artists in Kolkata and Mumbai: 1770 – 1870’

by Mr. Jawhar Sircar

In collaboration with the Museum Society of Mumbai

Auditorium, Visitors Centre, CSMVS

European artists have left behind a veritable archive of life-like portrayals of Indian subjects, with the exactitude of photographs. India is thus exceptionally endowed with visual records of every facet of life and landscape that cover a whole century before photography arrived. Sircar explains the significance and present utility of this unique treasure.
