“Adapting the Eye: An Archive of the British in India, 1770-1830,” a new exhibition at the Yale Center for British Art, provides a “unique window” into high art and popular culture in British India during the 18th and 19th centuries.
Featured in the exhibition are a diverse range of objects — including albums, scrapbooks, prints, paintings, and sculptures — by professional and amateur artists, patrons, and scholars.
The items on display, many of which are being displayed for the first time, are selected from the center’s holdings as well as from Tate Britain, the British Library, and the Yale University Art Gallery.
“Adapting the Eye: An Archive of the British in India, 1770-1830" will remain on view through Dec. 31. The Yale Center for British Art is located at 1080 Chapel St. Admission is free. For museum hours and directions, visit the Yale Center for British Art or call 203-432-2800.
