Sita Ram, The Great Gola on the Maidan at Bankipore, 1814-15 © The British Library Board.
Sita Ram, whose work we know of from the first decades of the 19th century, was an artist who worked almost exclusively for the Governor-General Lord Hastings and his wife. This talk by Jerry Losty will explore his origins in the style of Murshidabad and how he brilliantly adapted the trappings of the English picturesque to an Indian sensibility, when recording the sights to be seen in the Hastings’ journeys within India.
