Description

The Flemish artist Baltazard Solvyns, residing in Calcutta from 1791until 1804, produced a remarkable series of etchings depicting the people and culture he observed. Fist published in Calcutta in 1796 and 1799, and then in a four volume edition, Les Hindous, published in Paris, 1808-12, the etchings include portrayals of 36 musical instruments as well as prints of the nautch and a Hindu dancing girl. These etchings represent, in most instances, the first illustrations of the instruments and the manner in which they are played.

Hardgrave and Slawek here reproduce these prints, together with Solvyn’s descriptive text, and their own commentary for each plate.
