The British were the first to educate the Western world about the beauty of Indian miniature art.
In India, miniatures were produced by and for followers of four different religious traditions: Buddism, Jainism, Hinduism and Islam. The miniatures, which were delicate and detailed, were filled with rich religious iconography.
Approximately 35 works of art from a prestigious private Seattle collection will be on display.
