A View of the Pagodas at Deogar(019XZZ000000744U00022000)

Artist: Hodges, William (1744-1797)

Medium: Aquatint with etching

Date: 1787

Shelfmark: X744(22)

Item number: plate 22

Genre: Print

This is plate 22 from William Hodges' book 'Select Views in India'. Hodges saw the temples at Deogarh in 1782. He wrote that "the Pagodas at Deogur ... are in the earliest stage of Hindoo Buildings, simply Pyramids, by pieling stone on stone, without any light whatever within, but what comes from a small Door scarcely five feet high." He used this view together with the view of the 'Great Pagoda at Tanjore', to contrast what he saw as the early and the later stages of Indian architecture.
