Exhibition: From London to Lucknow: A Re-Discovered Collection of Drawings by Johan Zoffany (1733-1810)
Andrew Clayton-Payne is delighted to announce an exhibition devoted to a re-discovered group of drawings by Johan Zoffany, one of the most original and celebrated artists of the Enlightenment working in both England and India at the end of the eighteenth century. Hitherto, there were only around 30 known drawings by the artist, the majority being in museums such as the British Museum and the Yale Center for British Art. The exhibition will give a fascinating insight in to the artist's working methods and his close relationship with his patron in Lucknow Claude Martin (1735-1800). Martin is one of the most interesting figures of 18th century colonial India and his legacy lives on to this day in the schools he founded.
