Prasad Tare tracks old regional paintings of Chhatrapati Shivaji

Prasad Sudhir Tare, a member of the Bharat Itihas Sanshodhak Mandal, has tracked down images of collections from museums and private collectors in the US, Germany and France.

He has recently received a mail from a museum in France containing a thumbnail of a painting of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Expressing his excitement, he said, "I paid my obeisance. I was overwhelmed to think of the artist who had stood before Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and made the work."
