MAP’s special collection, Portraits of Royal Women, brings together photographs of royal women from across the length and breadth of Princely India, as well as the neighbouring kingdom of Nepal. Chronicling the visual representation of women for over a century, this collection forms a record of the changing modes and tropes of photographic portraiture from its beginnings, and provides a window into the socio-historical circumstances of the time.
