Debra Diamond

January - February 2002

Debra Diamond is associate curator of South and Southeast Asian art at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.  A specialist in Rajput painting, Diamond's adventurous combination of formal analysis with semiotic and postcolonial theories--evidenced in several articles and catalogue entries--has already distinguished her work among recent developments in the field of Asian art studies.  At the Clark, Diamond will complete an article, "The Light of the Sun: Historical Narrative in Rajput Painting," that will examine pictorial representations of kingship and historical time in a genre very much in need of art historical revaluation.
