The multifarious paintings from the ‘Ram Katha’ set of collections painted between the 17th and the 19th Century will be acquired by the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) in Canberra from the National Museum next month.
Curator Vijay Kumar Mathur, who has selected the 101 paintings in chronological progression capturing the story of the Ramayana, said, “These miniatures represent a matured movement that colorfully visualizes the spirit of the Ramayana.”
The collection is one of India’s richest artefacts, he further added and also recalled the National Museum organizing a “Rama-Katha” exhibition in 2013, after which it travelled to Belgium.
Pooled in from India’s northern, central and eastern territories, the grand body of artwork will be on display in the 1967-founded NGA for three months from May 22.
Director-general of National Museum, Venu V said, “The Rama-Katha is part of this oral inheritance where the epic has grown many layers, as is the case with interpretations around it through ages. Introducing the Ramayana story to Australian audiences through this exhibition will also be a great opportunity to bring international histories closer.”
