Representation of Melodic Modes in the Ragachitras of Mewar: A Textual and Aesthetic Study to be delivered by Prof. (Dr). Anupa Pande

The concept of the painting of melodic modes (rāgas) constitutes a unique genre of Indian painting. What was it that an abstract form (amūrtarūpa) was made manifest into concrete form (mūrtarūpa) in a material medium? This lecture aims to address the aforementioned questions and is divided into three parts: The first part contains an overview of the history of Indian music and traces the antiquity of rāgas. The second part elaborates upon the transformation of the audible component i.e. raga into the visual component i.e. rāgachitra. The third part deals with a textual and aesthetic analysis of selected Ragachitras from Mewar School, 16th and 17th Century A.D. The folios selected as case study include Vasanta, Bhairavī, Āsāvarī and Dhanaśrī of the melodic modes.
