Tasveer at Laxmi Vilas Palace Baroda
Andreas Volwahsen’s Living Architecture
Tasveer is delighted to announce its continued collaboration with the Maharaja Fatehsingh Museum at the Lukshmi Villas Palace, Baroda for its ninth season of exhibitions. On view between 24th November and 11th December 2014 at the courtyards of the stunning Palace will be Andreas Volwahsen’s Living Architecture.
Dr. Andreas Volwahsen (b. 1941) is a celebrated German architectural historian and this exhibition focuses on his photographs, that have long been neglected. Taken originally to illustrate his first two books, they rise far above the merely descriptive and demonstrate both a strong modernist aesthetic and a desire to better understand ancient Indian architecture.
Christopher Taylor Feature
