A celebration of India

This year marks 70 years since Indian independence, and there has been a whole host of events to mark the anniversary across the country. Cambridge has been getting in on the act with India Unboxed, a season of events, exhibitions, digital encounters, discussions, installations and more across all the University museums and the Botanic Garden this summer.

The Fitzwilliam’s contribution is From Kabul to Kolkata: Highlights of Indian Painting, an exhibition that will be running until 3 September in the museum’s Shiba Gallery. It features miniature Indian paintings and drawings dating from the 16th to the 19th century, covering themes including history, royal portraiture, religious epic and myth, music and architecture.
