Special lecture: Love in India
Jackie Menzies, emeritus curator Asian art
For emeritus curator Asian art at the Art Gallery of NSW Jackie Menzies, the classical traditions of Indian art are a source of endless delight. Foremost for Menzies are the vibrant pictorial renderings of religious and secular narratives, endeared through familiarity and respect.
Love is a dominant theme within such works with their depictions of the gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines. This lecture explores the most popular love subjects and introduces some of the terms and concepts unique to Indian aesthetics. There will be a focus on images produced at the luxurious courts of the Rajputs from the 17th to 19th centuries.
