The Ganga Painting Series is a series of 50 Paintings done by Pieter Weltevrede under the guidance and tutelage of his teachers, late Harish Johari and Master Chandra Bal. Pieter wants to fulfill the desire of late Harish Johari and donate this beautiful series of art to an Indian temple, provided that they can be secured against physical degradation through moisture, etc.

Pieter Weltevrede explains why :

"Even before we started making this series it was the desire of my teacher, late Harish Johari, that the paintings would never be sold; they were destined to be donated to an Indian temple (in India). It is a personal tapasya to do so, in gratitude to Mother Ganga. For Harish Johari making this series was a dream that he had cherished all of his life. He worked out the compositions, decided the color settings, and helped in the finishing of the pictures and this way corrected me every step of the way."

Backgrounds :

The Ganga Painting series was produced between 1996 and 1998. It took over 2000 working hours. The total sales value of the series as actual paintings is estimated at 150.000 US$.

The series describes the life of the goddess Ganga. The story has been written by Harish Johari and was published together with reproductions of the paintings within the famous Ganga Book. High quality scans of the paintings are available for other reproductions in posters, postcards, calendars, etc… Interested publishers can click here.

At this stage, the donation project is only a project. There has not been any temple chosen as yet. It should obviously be located near the Ganga. The subject of protecting the paintings still requires careful study. The main issue is probably the protection of the aquarells against high air moisture in the monsoon period.

Pieter Weltevrede also hopes that art galleries or other organisations can be found to organize an exposition of the Ganga paintings series in Europe and in the US before the paintings are going back to India for good.

In conclusion, we are looking for :

  • An indian temple near Ganga that can offer the 50 paintings a nice indoor location and can assure a basic protection against theft and damage.
  • Somebody who can study the issue of protection against moisture and other physical damages.
  • Sponsors that are willing to carry the cost for protecting the paintings against moisture and other physical damage.
  • Art galleries and other organisations that can organize an exposition of the paintings in the West before they return to India.

If you feel able to help in any way, please fill in the Ganga Paintings Project Mailform.
