Curator John Guy discusses “Wonder of the Age: Master Painters of India, 1100-1900,” on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition includes some 220 works selected according to identifiable hands and named artists, dispelling the notion of anonymity in Indian art. The high points of artistic innovation in the history of Indian painting are demonstrated through works by 40 of the greatest Indian painters, some of whom are identified for the first time.
