Preface

 

It is with great pleasure that MOSA presents the show Madhubani Art, by Bharti Dayal. Bharti is one the first artists whose work we incorporated into MOSA's collection and the first with a sufficient number of works at MOSA to make a show. Dealing with her through the years has been inspiring, as she completely loves and identifies with this form of art. Her mastery of the tradition and her capacity to bring it out in contemporary media like acrylic and canvas have made her an ambassador to the modern world of this ancient art of Mithila. She is in love with both the tradition and its themes. The themes of Krishna, Radha and the gopis permeates her artwork. Her desire to put Krishna's unlimited pastimes on canvas keeps her devotion to Krishna alive and makes her very joyful. I During this exhibition, Bharti will be giving live demonstrations and leading workshops on traditional Madhubani Art for MOSA's Western audiences, and we thank her for agreeing to do that. May the Western audiences enjoy the exuberant art of Bharti Dayal, full of colors, forms, patterns, and stories. This is the tradition of Madhubani Art that women have painted for millennia in the region of Mithila.
