RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, December, 2009: Renowned Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in Richmond (USA) has acquired a rare 18th-century legend scroll from Andhra Pradesh, one of the few of its kind to survive today.

Dr. Joseph M. Dye III, VMFA’s curatorial chair, reportedly says it is a “rare and unrivaled painting” that is “dramatically” longer than other known examples and is clearly the work of a master atelier. “I can say with complete confidence that this is the greatest South Indian painting that I have seen in my 42-year professional career.”

The VMFA already has a large collection of Hindu arts and artifacts and has organized Hinduism related exhibitions in the past.
