Visions of India in California Bringing South Asia to the Sunshine State

Independent scholar Edward L. Rothfarb discusses the mythology of India in California’s visual culture. What, if anything, does Beatrice Wood’s interest in Indian art and spirituality have to do with 20th Century Fox’s 1955 film, The Rains of Ranchipur, the domed Lake Shrine and Retreat in Pacific Palisades, and Norton Simon’s collection of South Asian sculpture? Rothfarb will explore the visual connections between California and India, each the font of rich imaginaries.
