Art in India serves the purposes of life. It was never art for artâ€™s sake, but was always created in response to demand. It was not love of art, but a love of life that was expressed in this incredible aesthetic tradition from early civilisations to modern times. This lecture provides a glimpse into the world of Indian paintings on walls, cloth, palm-leaf and paper and the stories they tell about gods and kings, artists and patrons, lovers and thieves.
