"Gates of the Lord: The Tradition of Krishna Paintings"

Art, Painting

Featuring 100 pieces sourced from private and public collections in India and the United States, the Art Institute's latest exhibition examines the visual indentity of Pushtimarg, a Hindu denomination from Western India. Visitors can view beautiful, detailed paintings as they learn about the temple town of Nathdwara in India, the center of the religous sect. Drawing from works that date back to the late 18th century, "Gates of the Lord" pays tribute to Pushtimarg artists of the past, as well as present day practitioners who are carrying on the visual tradition.
