Botanical Paintings

Printed Flowering Plants of India


Two centuries ago, the British botanists began a visual study of Indian flora. Indian artists were commissioned to make botanical paintings which were sent back to Britain where it still survives in collections at some of the Royal botanical gardens. 

India has always been a pluralist society with many influences. The flora is a manifestation of this. Over the centuries the Indian flora has been cross-pollinated through trade from regions across the world. These overtime got indigenised and became Indian. This collection of paintings celebrate this legacy. 

This series of Botanical Paintings were produced by Siddhartha Das Studio in collaboration with skilled miniature artists. 

The collection is currently on view online at the India International Centre from 24 August to 6 September 2020. 
Art prints are available on request. Please contact
