When Blindness Makes for Sight: Early Portraits of Surdas from Udaipur

3 Apr '17 6.30 pm
 
 

It is quite rare for a Hindi poet to be depicted in manuscript illustrations of the works he or she is believed to have composed, yet this does happen with Surdas. We know of some 150 paintings in which he appears by the early eighteenth century in Udaipur. Why this special treatment? Could his blindness—his reputed blindness—provide the key?
