Lectures

Art and Stories of Mughal Women

When: Wed., Sept. 28 2016

Art and Stories from Mughal India, an art exhibit currently on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art, presents the story of the Mughals—and stories for the Mughals with 100 detailed paintings from the 1500s to 1800s. In connection with that exhibit, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Womens Council will host Art and Stories of Mughal Women, a free event, that takes place today at 6 p.m. in the museum’s Gartner Auditorium. Sonya Rhie Quintanilla, the museum’s George P. Bickford Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art and Interim Curator of Islamic Art, will present a lecture about the strength and power of women in the Mughal court. In her talk, she’ll discuss details of the “elegant lifestyle” with the use of high-resolution photographs of paintings currently on view in the exhibit. (Niesel)
