Madhubani Art (Indian Art Series) – Bharti Dayal [JUNE 2015 – JUNE 2016]

It is with great pleasure that MOSA presents the show Madhubani Art, by Bharti Dayal. Bharti is one the first artists whose work we incorporated into MOSA’s collection and the first with a sufficient number of works at MOSA to make a show. Dealing with her through the years has been inspiring, as she completely loves and identifies with this form of art. Her mastery of the tradition and her capacity to bring it out in contemporary media like acrylic and canvas have made her an ambassador to the modern world of this ancient art of Mithila. She is in love with both the tradition and its themes....

Living Traditions in Indian Art [Jan 2010 – Jan 2013]

India is a vast country: a subcontinent. India is also one of the ancient civilizations of the world. The antiquity of its civilization is matched by the vastness of its geographical extent. Both of these have contributed to the rich and multiple art forms of India. This diversity is aptly illustrated by the artworks chosen for display in the collection of the Museum of Sacred Art. We know that stories associated with Shri Krishna arise, among other sources, from the Mahabharata, the Harivamsa, the Bhagavata Purana, and the Vishnu Purana.The narratives in each of these, place Lord Krishna in various...
