IMAGES OF THE EXOTIC

POSTERS OF INDIA FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF TRAVEL
----------------------------------------------

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 5th, 2019
On view: September 5th - 27th, 2019

*****************************************************************
This fall, Kapoor Galleries is thrilled to present Images of the
Exotic: Posters of India from the Golden Age of Travel, on view
at 34 East 67th Street from September 5th to 27th, coinciding
with the September edition of Asia Week New York. The exhibition
will showcase an array of 20th century posters created to entice
potential travelers with the mysteries of the Subcontinent,
typically issued and distributed by commercial aviation companies
to market their international destinations to the elite.

Ranging from the 1930’s to 1970, these posters feature real world
oases and monuments along with portrayals of “native” people, in
the hope of accumulating interest for newly available travel
routes. The images boast lush landscapes of Kashmir along with
scenes of snowy northern regions like Kanchenjunga, contrasting
the vast natural resources India contains with exciting urban
events grounded in tradition; such as the car festival at Puri.
Other works included in the exhibition employ sculpture and
architecture as an aspect of intrigue to the traveler. A print
published and circulated by the Government of India depicts two
Indian women on an intricate covered terrace overlooking the Taj
Mahal, placing the viewer in the foreground as if they, too, were
experiencing the vista on the same terrace. While the majority of
these prints were designed by unidentified artists, a number can
be attributed to the American artist David Klein, the Danish
artist Otto Nielsen, and the Swiss artist Donald Brun.
