The session that featured, award-winning Scottish historian, writer, art historian, curator and critic, William Dalrymple and the Indian academic and museum curator, Dr. Alka Pande , commemorated the ‘forgotten masters’ of Indian painting. The session progressed on the discussion of Dalrymple’s book Forgotten Masters: Indian Painting for the East India Company. Dalrymple stated that there was a mixing of the two cultures that happened when the British initially came to India, which can be seen mainly in art. The session proceeded with a presentation, exhibiting Indian Paintings that were made for the East India Company from 1770 to 1857. The session proved to be an eye-opener as it closely analysed the Indian contribution to the world of art and paintings. “The nation that controlled over 28.5% of the World Trade were conquered by a small company with their tactics”, mentioned Dalrymple. Paintings by artists like Zainuddin were displayed in the presentation.
