Client: Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, City Palace, Jaipur
August 2011 – Ongoing
The Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum is located within the City Palace complex, Jaipur and houses a diverse collection of paintings, photographs, artefacts, and arms and armour. The museum was instituted by Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II in 1959 and spreads across various sections of the palace complex like the Mubarak Mahal, the Diwan-i-Aam, the Diwan-i-Khas and the Chandra Mahal.
Eka has been called in as consultants for the museum collection. Initially involved as cataloguing consultants for the photography section of the collection, Eka has also prepared an assessment report on selected collections of the museum as desired by the trustees. We are now in the process of planning a major exhibition. Eka is presently working on the design, development and supervision of a new painting & photography gallery at The City Palace.
