Retracing Ribeiro

An Indian Artist in Camden

A heritage exhibition

A new Heritage Lottery Funded 'Retracing Ribeiro' exhibition explores the life of Indian painter, Lancelot Ribeiro, as part of Camden’s 2017 India programme. A Camden resident since 1950, his archive spans more than 70 years and chronicles his work in the borough, its evolving cultural scene and his watercolour landscapes in the Camden Art Collection.
