Is Krishna always blue? What is Indian yellow? Why are the margins of so many Rajput paintings painted a brilliant red? Dr. Kavita Singh (Professor of Art History at the School of Arts and Aesthetics of Jawaharlal Nehru University) presents a window into the rich and complex world of colour in miniature paintings.
Discover new shades of familiar colours in this illustrated talk that explores the symbolic meaning of the hues, the pigments that constitute them and the artists’ brilliant use of colour to convey narrative.
