Daniell's Art Show

The art exhibition of the famous British Painters, Thomas and William Daniell, was hosted by the Goethals Indian Library & Research Society at St. Xavier's Auditorium, from the 2nd to the 5th of April, 2004. The "Oriental Scenery" exhibition was inaugurated by Dr. Pratap Chandra Chander, former Union Education Minister. Among the distinguished guests at the function was His Grace Archbishop Lucas Sircar, Mr. Raghu Mody, Mr. B. M. Khaitan, Mr. Saugata Ray, Fr. J. Maliyekal and others. The event was sponsored by the Rasoi Group of Companies.

The exhibition was a huge success. There were a large number of visitors. The Daniell's Paintings, as well as the Old Calcutta prints of William Wood and James B. Fraser were appreciated by all who attended. The curios and antiques of the library were put on display for this special and memorable occasion. The art show may become an annual feature. There are several ambitious plans to promote the art collections of Goethals.

The "Daniell Art Exhibition" was planned and co-ordinated by Fr. J. Felix Raj, SJ. Director of the Goethals Indian Library & Research Society.
