Maithil Painters of Nepal

Artists associated with the Janakpur Women's Development Center, founded in 1989, are earning recognition as some of the finest contemporary artists in Nepal.  To date, their work has been exhibited in the U.S.A., U.K., the Federal Republic of Germany and Belgium. The artists' pleasure in the development of a profession, and in the new-found freedom to express themselves through painting, is reflected in the stories they tell in these pages.
