When: Sat., July 8, 1:30 p.m. 2017

Many of the paintings in the exhibition Divine Visions, Earthly Pleasures illustrate poetry associated with an important genre of classical music of North India known as ragas, which relate to particular moods, seasons, and times of day. In his illustrated talk, guest curator Robert Del Bontà explores the fascinating subject of ragamala painting, which flourished at the Hindu and Muslim courts as early as the fifteenth century.
