Indian Paintings and Landscapes at the British Museum

Photos from a recent visit to the British Museum to see the Garden and Cosmos exhibition. The exhibition has 56 paintings from India, none of which have been displayed before in Europe. It was a fantastic opportunity to experience the unique art tradition that flourished in the royal courts between the 17th and 19th centuries.
