Cross Cultural Influences in the Arts: An Exploration of how other cultures have influenced the Arts in Britain

Wyvern Area Study Day 2        The British Empire and Imperial India

Images, Architecture and Arts - This study day explores a range of images, buildings, objects and art forms from across the British Empire. Beginning with a broad view of the empire and imperial art in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, we will go on to focus more closely on Imperial India. We will consider the arts and architecture of the vibrant capital city of Calcutta, the 'second city' of the British Empire throughout the nineteenth century. We will then take a detailed look at the life and art of one of India's cultural giants, Rabindranath Tagore. An experienced Arts Society Lecturer, John Stevens is an expert on the cultural history of India and the British Empire.
