Kapoor Galleries presents God/Goddess for Asian Art in London, 2020. The London exhibition will feature an array of fine Indian miniature paintings and small sculptures from India, Nepal, Tibet and Southeast Asia. Highlights from the catalogue (which captures our full New York exhibition from March 2020) include a rare and important Indian painting of Chinnamasta, signed by master artist Nainsukh of Guler; an impressive South Indian bronze figure of Parvati from the Vijayanagara period; an exquisite thirteenth-fourteenth-century Pala-style figure of Vajrapani forged in silver; and large and significant Western Tibetan painting of Buddha Shakyamuni and the Thirty-Five Buddhas of Confession from the fifteenth century. God/Goddess presents a wide but masterfully-executed view of gods, goddesses, and other divinities from the Hindu, Jain, and Vajrayana Buddhist traditions of the regions.
