In­dian Pa­hari paint­ing in Zurich

Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

Mu­seum Ri­et­berg, Zürich Show­ing un­til: 1 May 2017

The ex­hi­bi­tion shows forty works of In­dian Pa­hari paint­ing from the mag­nif­i­cent Horst Met­zger Col­lec­tion.

The paint­ings orig­i­nate from the work­shops of the Pa­hari re­gion, in the foothills of the Hi­malayas in north­west­ern In­dia, and were com­mis­sioned in the eigh­teenth and early nine­teenth cen­turies by princes with a pen­chant for art. The works in the col­lec­tion are re­garded as pearls of In­dian paint­ing on ac­count of their del­i­cate pa­per, fine draw­ing and valu­able colour pig­ments.
