Praying to the Gods to Fighting for Social Justice: Mithila painters and the SU
the 1970s, Professor H. Daniel Smith obtained some 70 Mithila painters from the
Madhubani region of northern Bihar. In the
early years of this tradition moving from the clay walls of their homes to
paper, these paintings are an historical record of a major painting tradition.
By the 21st century, the tradition had evolved in style and content. Renowned
painter Shalinee Kumari will discuss the differences in
thought and style between the early traditions on paper and the modern works by
herself and her compatriots.
