MFA Presents Ananda Coomaraswamy Annual Lecture

Holland Cotter: Babysat by the Buddha

Growing up in Boston, the New York times art critic Holland Cotter came to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as a child. The works of art he encountered there led to a lifelong interest in Indian art and eventually took him to Columbia University for formal study of early Indian Buddhist art. Today, as a Pulitzer Prize winning critic, he often writes about and reviews exhibitions of Indian art, including a recent piece about a 7th-century sculpture of the Buddha from northern India. Cotter returns to Boston on May 22nd to give the 2019 Ananda Coomaraswamy Lecture on Indian Art at the MFA. He will discuss his childhood experiences with the MFA, his interest in South Asian art, and his wish to share this love with his readers.
