The catalogue is based on Joyee’s curated exhibition from the collection of the Victoria Memorial Hall, which showcases a selection of around fifty five artefacts on Krishna in different media. The selection includes an illustrated manuscript of the Vaishnava text Geeta Govinda, two illustrated Oriya manuscripts, miniature paintings of the late medieval period, patachitras, early Bengal oil paintings, oleographs, lithographs, prints, coins, metal sculptures, paintings from the Bengal school of art and modern paintings of the first half of the twentieth century.

You can read more about the exhibition and its development from Joyee’s guest post “A Note from the Curator”:
