Jain Manuscripts and Painting from India at the V&A

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Enjoy the last chance to discover the JAINpedia display of fascinating illustrated manuscripts from India with curator Nick Barnard and explore the sacred pilgrimage site of Shatrunjaya through a huge and spectacular painting recently acquired by the V&A.

The JAINpedia display at the V&A will close on 22 September 2013 to allow these fragile and light-sensitive manuscript pages to be rested. Come and see the new display of early Indian paintings, opening 28 September, which will include nine other fascinating and beautiful Jain manuscript folios. The Shatrunjaya painting will also remain on display.
