Divine Pleasures: Painting from India's Rajput Courts—The Kronos Collections
June 14–September 12

The Kronos Collection of Indian painting embodies a finely distilled selection of nearly 100 works from the royal courts of northern India, forming a major promised gift by collector Steven M. Kossak to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. These vivid and inspired images—dating from the 16th to the early 19th century and representing almost all major artistic centers of Rajasthan and the Punjab Hills—reflect the meeting of artistic talent, spiritual devotion, and royal taste.

Divine Pleasures celebrates the collection and presents this visual splendor in relation to the rich literary and philosophical traditions of Indian Hinduism.
