Indo-Persian Painting Workshop
British Museum
May 21-25-2007

Tutor : Anita Chowdry

This practical workshop for 12 persons, run by International
Academic Projects in collaboration with the British Museum,
introduces participants to the practice of painting and drawing
employed by the painters who worked in the royal ateliers of the
Mughal and Regional Indian courts. Using Indian miniaturist's
squirrel-hair brushes, and following the various stages involved in
constructing a painting, including the preparation and application
of pigments and gold, this practical work will be put into context
with its historical background by appreciation of the paintings in
the British Museum collection.

Anita Chowdry, artist and researcher, has maintained a long and
close association with the family of Bannu, master painters in
India. She has run dedicated workshops and demonstrations to
accompany a number of exhibitions at major institutions including
The British Museum, the V&A, the National Portrait Gallery and the
British Library. In March she is artist in residence at the San
Francisco Asian Art Museum, coinciding with the exhibition 'Princes,
Palaces, and Passion: The Art of India's Mewar Kingdom'.
