The subcontinent of India saw the birth of several of the world’s major religions, faiths that soon developed rich artistic traditions. We'll examine some of the most inspiring works from three major religions, and how artists express important tenets of belief and inspire followers to greater devotion.

This course introduces religious art in India, beginning with pre-Hindu religious beliefs in the Indus Valley Civilization, the development of Buddhist and Hindu artistic traditions, and finally, the importation of Islam into India and the art of the Mughal Empire.

We'll also highlight significant objects from the CMOA collection--attendees get admission opportunities to see great art up close after class.
