Robert J. Del Bontà, Ph.D., Independent Scholar and Curator
When John Yeon began collecting Indian paintings in the 1950s, he was among the first generation of Americans to recognize the appeal of these vibrantly colored images of devotional fervor, romantic poetry, and court life. Robert Del Bontà, guest curator for the exhibition of Indian paintings within Quest for Beauty, offers a guide to key themes and stylistic characteristics of these compelling works.
