Friends of Asian Art Lectures: Finding Paintings inside the Zoo, and the Zoo inside the Paintings


Price: $0.00

If you go to the zoo in Thiruvananthapuram in southern India, you’ll find hippos and tigers, and also 60 works by the modernist Indian artist K.C.S. Paniker (1911-77), whose canvases teem with animals, astrological symbols, and unreadable writing. This lecture by Rebecca M. Brown, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, History of Art at Johns Hopkins University, delves into these vibrant, dynamic works and considers their dialogue with the animals housed next door.
