Prahlad Bubbar, Asian Art
5 Aldford Street, Mayfair
Prahlad Bubbar is delighted to announce his forthcoming exhibition,
Recent Acquisitions of Indian
Paintings and Photography, on view at his gallery in Mayfair from 19 April to 18 May 2012.
A highlight of the exhibition is a collection of previously unseen portraits by the nineteenth-century Indian photographer, Raja Deen Dayal. Widely considered to be the one of the most talented and influential photographers of his time, Deen Dayal’s work provides a fascinating window into the
lives of India’s elites at the dawn of the modern age.
The exhibition features works that date from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. It showcases the great variety of styles and themes found in the history of Indian works on paper, from the early cosmic diagrams of the Jains to the arrival of photography. In particular, it celebrates the diversity and ubiquity of the Indian portrait, whether in the form of the ash-smeared, Hindu god Shiva or the bejewelled Rajput princes of Rajasthan.
Prahlad Bubbar is a dealer and consultant of Indian art. He is a specialist in Indian miniature paintings from 1400-1900 and widely respected in the field for his knowledge.
All works are for sale. Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11am-6pm, Sunday by appointment.
