South Asian Art
Focused primarily on the 19th century, Peabody Essex Museum’s South Asian Art gallery considers India’s long and complex history of foreign occupation, and its troubling impact on the representation of Indian people in art.
Following independence from British Rule in 1947, artists in India aimed to uncover a visual language that was uniquely Indian in inspiration to convey their experiences, struggles, ambitions and dreams. Bridging myth with social and political history, the new Chester and Davida Herwitz Gallery tells the story of nation-building and self-discovery through works by India's most celebrated artistic geniuses of the 20th century.
