Book launch: India in Art in Ireland

On 25 March, India in Art in Ireland edited by Prof. Kathleen James-Chakraborty (Routledge2016) was launched in India at the Irish embassy in New Delhi by Prof. Parul Mukherji of JNU.
The book is the result of a seed funding grant that brought leading art historians Darielle Mason (Philadelphia Museum of Art), Darcy Grimaldo Grigsby (University of California Berkeley), and Arindam Dutta (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to UCD to lecture on celebrated works in Irish collections. The collection features essays on Rajput and Mughal miniatures, on a portrait of an Indian woman by the Irish painter Thomas Hickey, on the gate lodge to the Dromana estate in County Waterford, and a consideration of the intellectual context of Harry Clarke's Eve of St. Agnes window.
