Lucknow was not only a paradigm of a brilliant, if short-lived Indian kingdom. It was a magnet for foreigners from many parts of the world, but Europeans were to have the most profound influence on its architecture, its amusements, and ultimately its politics. An illustrated lecture by scholar Rosie Llewellyn-Jones who has known the city since the early 1970s and is the editor and author of a number of books on Lucknow including, Portraits in Princely India: 1700–1900 (2008), Lucknow: Then and Now (2006), and A Fatal Friendship—The Nawabs, The British and The City of Lucknow (1999). This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition India’s Fabled City: The Art of Courtly Lucknow.
