Three New Thematic Displays of Asian Art

Due to their sensitivity to light and climate, we rotate Asian paintings and textiles in our permanent collection roughly every six months. The current installation is on view through November 2022. Understanding an Eighteenth-Century Indian Album brings together several manuscript pages featuring exquisite paintings of musical modes, given to Yale in 1939 and 1940. The display locates their production in late 18th-century northern India and presents a selection of textiles and ceramics similar to those illustrated in these pages.
