The Fitzwilliam’s second exhibition to mark the 70th anniversary of India's independence showcases a selection of Indian miniature paintings and drawings, ranging in date from the 16th to 19th century. The exhibition will include works produced under the patronage of the Mughal dynasty and other princely rulers, as well as several acquired by early British patrons and collectors in India.

The paintings and drawings represent some of the main themes that engaged patrons and artists in India in the early modern period, including religious epic and myth, history, royal portraiture, natural history, music and architecture.

This exhibition forms part of the University of Cambridge Museums’ India Unboxed programme.
