India’s first contemporary Sculpture Park

An unwinding road leads me to the majestic Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur, a legacy of the city’s founder Maharaj Sawai Jai Singh II.

An unwinding road leads me to the majestic Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur, a legacy of the city’s founder Maharaj Sawai Jai Singh II. The fort is located on the ridge above the city and was built in 1734, nine years before the Maharaja’s death in 1743, to be a retreat for the royals. The undulating walls of the fort offer a spectacular view of the urban sprawl below it. It’s an attempt to take art out of galleries and museums and make is accessible to the common man. Internationally, sculpture parks are set up in big gardens and parks for everyone to appreciate art but in India art continues to be elite, limited to galleries, says the park’s project director Amrita Kaur. The exhibition of 62 installations by top international and Indian contemporary artists at Madhavendra Palace spark visitors’ imagination about the elaborate galas and the secret rendezvous these walls have witnessed. If you are planning a trip to India, make sure you include Jaipur in your itinerary and go before November this year, otherwise you may miss Vikram Goyal’s The Hundred Petal Lotus, handcrafted by skilled artisans in stepped tiers using multiple sheets of beaten brass. Placing the installation on the rooftop of the palace makes it look grander.

What was hanging on Van Gogh’s walls? In The Bedroom, we see what was hanging above his bed in Arles: two portraits of friends whom he had got to know in the town; one of the painter Eugene Boch and a portrait of Lieutenant Paul-Eugène Milliet. #VanGoghPortrays
