Explore the life and times of India’s great kings by getting close to the objects they used and the art they commissioned, collected, and loved.  Journey from the throne room of an Indian court to the inner sanctum of the palace. Visit a variety of kingdoms to learn about India’s shifting political powers, its colonization by Great Britain, and the emergence of the independent nations of India and Pakistan in the modern era. Along the way, discover fantastical art created especially for this exhibition by contemporary artist Sanjay Patel. Don’t miss more of his colorful works on the second floor inspired by classical Indian art and Hindu epics. On the third floor will be a showcase of magnificent Indian courtly art from our own collection.
