Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts

The exhibition featured over 250 objects and explored the unique rich culture of the Maharajas. In order to reflect the magnificence of the exhibits, different textures and materials are used to create different moods. For example, a ‘gold leaf’ wall evokes the opulence of India’s 18th Century royal courts while brushed aluminium display panels and vibrant pink walls reflect the relationship the Maharajas had with the European avant-garde.
