Rare Indian art displayed in London exhibition


London: Indian master painters by artists such as Shaikh Zain ud-Din, Bhawani Das and Ghulam Ali Khan were displayed at an exhibition in London.

Titled ‘Forgotten Masters: Indian Painting for the East India Company’, the exhibition has opened at the Wallace Collection until April, showcasing artwork from various collections across the globe, curated by writer William Dalrymple.

The paintings were commissioned during the late eighteenth and nineteen centuries by East India Company officials and their wives, as well as by itinerant British artists and intellectuals passing through India for pleasure and instruction.
