Harle Photographic Collection

Former AIIT trustee, Dr James C. Harle was Keeper of the Department of Eastern Art at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford from 1962 to 1987 and author of numerous books on the history of art and sculpture in India – most notably The Art and Architecture of the Indian Subcontinent (London: Penguin, 1986).

Dr Harle was on the organising and editorial committee for the trust publication The Crossroads of Asia: transformation in image and symbol (edited by Elizabeth Errington and Joe Cribb); a catalogue to accompany the trust sponsored exhibition of the same name, at The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, 6 October-13 December 1992.

The J. C. Harle collection is well labelled and documented, consisting of a large collection of high quality negatives and prints of Indian sculpture and architecture, and a select range of color transparencies of similar subjects with the emphasis on architecture.
