Arader Galleries is pleased to present a special catalog of antique engravings, lithographs and original watercolors focusing on our fine selection of works relating to India. It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Its rich culture and history, especially its role in early trade routes, and its present-day status as one of the world’s largest economies has no doubt inspired the modern collector. Europeans fervently documented this vast region, and the works in the following pages offer a glimpse into the great influence of the Indian culture over Western societies, from the early sixteenth century to well into the nineteenth century.

From 16th century maps, to 19th century sporting scenes, Arader Galleries has a wide range of material highlighting India, including its exotic flora and fauna, and majestic views and architecture. Please contact Arader Galleries at 415-788-5115 if you have an interest in receiving our India catalog.
