These are not just any Indian paintings but from the collection of Edwin Binney 3r showing us paintings from the Ramayana, Bhagavata Burana, Ragamala, and the Shahnama – the Persian Book of Kings. Edward Binney 3rd bequeathed some 1453 paintings and manuscripts from Southeast Asia to the San Diego Museum of Art. The exhibition is accompanied by musical performances, dances and storytelling. Edwin Binney was a trustee of the San Diego Museum of Art and his goal was too create an encyclopedic collection of Indian paintings. Only two museums – the Metropolitan and the LA County Museum have a comparable Indian painting collection, as well as the private Stuart Cay Welch.

Cheers,

Elisabeth
