Topography, Landscapes and Native People
100 days, 19 hours and 48 minutes.
"Topography, Landscapes and Native People" is a collection brought together by Hindoostan Revisited.
The collection is a glimpse into the India of the past or Hindoostan as it was then known.
It is a collection of cultural and historical curiosities of India on paper - the early lithographs, engravings, etchings, aquatints, woodcuts and illustrations on Indian subjects; which are collectively known as prints.
These prints, were made on all aspects of Indian life whether native or European, they depicted the landscapes, historical events, monuments and areas which existed when they were made. These pictures also documented the trades and crafts practiced, the social customs and costumes as well as personages. The natural history of India was carefully researched and documented as well.
The prints are rare and unique collectibles appreciated for their artistic quality and inherent value.
These objets d'art are also used as decor for homes and offices.
The Hindoostan Revisited collection has been curated for those who are interested in the art, history and culture of a bygone era.
