      SACHI 20th Anniversary Annual Event: The Unbearable Lightness Of Drawing

      SACHI, Society for Art & Cultural Heritage of India, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and The Asia Foundation are very honored to present Dr. B.N. Goswamy Distinguished art historian and Professor Emeritus, Punjab University, Chandigarh In an Illustrated Lecture Presentation The Unbearable Lightness Of Drawing Tracing the Life and Work ofthe Great 18th Century Painter, Nainsukh Internationally renowned and distinguished scholar Dr. B.N. Goswamy will lead an insightful journey into the realm of the Indian painter Nainsukh. In his pathbreaking work, Nainsukh of Guler: A Great Indian Painter from a Small Hill State, Professor Goswamy writes, “To trace the life and career of a painter (of the past) in India is somewhat akin to following the course of an earthen lamp oating on swift waters.” One can sight the glow for a while, but soon uncharted vastness takes over. In his lecture Professor Goswamy will share with the listener how he embarked upon the hard but rewarding task of identifying and picking up a faint whisper from the silences of the virtually anonymous past, and then piecing together something of the life of this great painter. In discussing his research, Professor Goswamy will draw attention to the entire ascribable oeuvre of Nainsukh – close to a hundred paintings, painted sketches, and drawings – and focus on a selection from it. The Event is Free after Museum Admission and Open to the Public. RSVP recommended. Further questions at info@sachi.org; Tel. 650-918-6335 Please join us for a reception in the Loggia adjoining Samsung Hall immediately following the lecture. The SACHI Annual Meeting will be held at 1:15 PM in Samsung Hall preceding the lecture presentation.
