The story of Anglo Indian Art

From the late 1780s, artists had been drawn to
the subcontinent to capture images of new
and exotic scenes and landscapes.
Professional artists were not only lured by the
subject matter but with the increase in the
British population in India, they were able to
secure lucrative commissions. Until then there
had been practically no visual record of India.
Their views of India gave the outside world,
as well as Indians themselves, the first-ever
visual impressions of monuments such as the
Taj Mahal.
