'Kunwar Anop Singh of Devgarh riding with a falcon' fronts the campaign for The Indian Portrait 1560 – 1860. This exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery tells the story of the Indian portrait over three centuries, exploring the fascinating ways in which Indian artists have approached the depiction of the human form and the changing role of portraiture in Indian history. Bringing together 60 exquisite works from international collections, the exhibition will celebrate the beauty, power and humanity of these works of art.
The typographic approach avoids a pastiche of Indian scripts thus underlining the fact that the exhibition provides today's western view of this historic period in Indian portraiture.
