  • Richard Gordon Matzene is one of the most significant early 20th-century American portrait photographers. He was active in New Delhi, India and Kathmandu, Nepal in the1930s, during which time he captured magnificent portraits of the members of the ruling family: the Ranas. Matzene's photos of the Rana family were recently discovered in Ponca city, Oklahoma, where Matzene settled. Marcella Sirhandi traces the history and career of Richard Gordon Matzene and provides insights into his work, as well as into the lives and history of his Rana subjects.

    In the early 1980s, when few South Asian art historians thought seriously about the art of the colonial period or beyond, Marcella Sirhandi chose Abdur Rahman Chughtai, a modern South Asian artist, for her PhD dissertation at The Ohio State University. Because Chughtai's style and subjects were so diverse the research required an investigation of art from Iran, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh from the Sultanate Period to the time of Chughtai's death in 1975. Sirhandi continued to publish books, essays and journal articles on contemporary Indian and Pakistani art. After the publication of Contemporary Painting in Pakistan, her first book, Sirhandi curated a number of exhibitions of Asian art and wrote catalogs for them.
