Most of the works published on European engraved prints of India depict scenery and architecture. But what of other views, particularly concerning religious practice? Observations of India were made long before Europeans went in search of the picturesque, and the coming of the East India Company. Bob del Bonta will explore the periods leading up to the establishment of the British Raj, with prints from his collection as well as those on view at the Asian, which form part of his collection.

Robert del Bonta is a well-known speaker for the Society for Asian Art, and has curated many shows at the Asian Art Museum as well as at BAM. He has lectured and published articles on Hindu, Jain, Sikh, and Mughal art and paintings, and 19th century photography and calendar art.
