Description

During the Portuguese presence in India, artists, both Indian and European, were called upon to work on Christian art objects for churches, convents and private chapels in homes. The local artists, consciously or subconsciously, included local decorative elements in the Christian art that they were producing. This led to the emergence of a distinct style which is today recognized the world over as Indo-Portuguese art. The Museum showcases a unique collection of Indian-influenced Christian Art that was produced by many of these artists from 16th to mid-20th centuries.

One Hundred Iconic Art Objects
from the Museum of Christian Art highlights this syncretism as seen in MocCA’s unique art objects —paintings, sculptures in wood and ivory, textiles, books, precious metals, and furniture, along with illuminating essays by experts on MoCA — its history, historic location and collection.
