SCHOOL OF MINIATURE PAINTING - SOMP
School of Miniature Painting (SOMP) is designed to preserve one of the most beautiful traditions of painting from Asia and the Middle East, and its safe transition into the 21st century. It will be the first of its kind and will teach the Art of Arab, Indian, Mughal, Persian, Ottoman, Mongol Painting, Manuscript Illustration and Art of the Book.
London, with its favourite image as the world’s cultural and artistic capital, is an ideal venue for such a centre because of its museums, libraries, unique bookshops housing the finest collections of miniature paintings and manuscripts.
SOMP has a virtual presence till it gets a physical space to run itself. Till then, the School will conduct workshops at various venues in London and elsewhere to mark its inception.
The School will soon launch a fundraising campaign and would appreciate any support from you in coming months.
