LE JOLI MAI (The Lovely Month of May)

Directed by Chris Marker and Pierre LHomme

French with English subtitles, B/W, 145 min, 1963

A city film like no other, Chris Marker and Pierre LHomme’s 1963 film ‘Le Joli Mai’ is a classic of documentary, an epic portrait of the city of Paris in ‘the lovely month of May’, as the title suggests. It was made in the first period of peace in France since 1939, just after the ceasefire between France and Algeria. Referring to the cinema-verite classic ‘Chronicle of a Summer’ by Jean Rouch and Edgar Mourin made two years before ‘Le Joli Mai’, the film expands and challenges the central question that shaped that film - “Are you happy?”.

The film alternates between interviews of everyday citizens of Paris along with a voiceover that emphasises but also works as a counterpoint to the questions being asked. The talking heads of Parisian citizens, stockbrokers discussing the market, architects discussing modern architecture, families showing off their new homes are juxtaposed against the stunning landscapes and idiosyncratic details of the city.

Divided into two halves, the first “A Prayer from the Eiffel Tower” seems to look at more personal views of the city, while the second "The Return of Fantomas” turns its attention to larger social and political questions. Through these emerges an alternately loving, angry, bitter and warm portrait of the city of Paris.

The film will be introduced and discussed by Ashmaki Acharya. Acharya, as a freelance independent film maker, has produced/directed/scripted numerous short films, documentaries, television shows, live events, corporate and advertising films.

Acharya did her Masters degree in English Literature (St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University) and has studied at The Film and Television Institute of India, Pune (Diploma in Direction). She has been in Film education over 10 years, and regularly conducts workshops and classes in various Film schools and other institutions.

Today marks John Lockwood Kipling's 181st birth anniversary (1837-1911). He was the Professor of Sculpture at the Sir JJ School of Art and later the Principal of the Mayo School of Art, Lahore.

Kipling produced many sketches for the 'The Journal of Indian Art and Industries', published between 1886-1916. The Journal published essays on Indian art manufactures and was written by several experts, often accompanied by illustrations.

This sketch was published as an illustration for a section on Brass and Copper Wares of Punjab and Cashmere by J.L.Kipling. Executed by Kipling and his pupil and assistant Sher Mohamad, it shows the kind of brass lamps used by halwais or sweetmeat sellers. The lamp in the inset is from Ambala while the larger lamp was from Shalimar in Lahore. The small hammers depicted in the plate were typically used by halwais for breaking sweetmeats into smaller portions.

The Museums library has a collection of Journal of Art volumes published in the years 1884 to 1914.

Have you noticed this peacock motif on a silver hookah in the Museum?

Smoking hookah was a symbol of affluence, culture and royalty in India. This enamel on silver hookah with peacock motifs, coloured in deep blue, green and gold, was gifted to the Museum in 1911 by Mr. S.D. Smith, the Assistant Collector of Excise (Bombay). Enamelling or meenakari technique came to India via Persia and flourished in the princely states of North India under royal patronage. It was traditionally used to ornament hookah bases, caskets, jewellery boxes, betel nut containers and decorative objects. The craft is in demand even today in the domestic and international markets.

Object of the Month: Model of a fisher woman drying fish, half baked terracotta and pigments, early 20th century, Mumbai

Koli fisherwomen drying the 'Bombay Duck' or 'bombil' on wooden poles is a common sight in Mumbai near the seashores across the western coastline of the city. The 'Bombay Duck' is a lizardfish that grows between 25 to 40 cms. Fresh catch is salted and dried over the summer, ready to be sold in the market during the Monsoon season when fishing in the seas is not permitted. According to popular belief, the term 'Bombay duck' evolved because this pungent fish was transported by the Bombay Mail, or the 'Bombay Dak' as it was known in Bengal, and the name stuck.

This model is part of the Museum's collection of clay models depicting occupations, attires and lifestyle of Mumbai in the 19th to 20th centuries.

#OnThisDay, in 1879, the statue of King Edward VII was unveiled in Mumbai by Sir Richard Temple, the then Governor of the Bombay Presidency. Sir Albert Sassoon, son of Jewish merchant David Sassoon presented the statue to the city.

The 'Kala Ghoda' area in Fort gets its name from this bronze statue, which was eventually shifted to the Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan, next to the Museum, in 1965.

PS: Notice the crowd holding umbrellas gathering around to watch the unveiling of the statue! #MumbaiMonsoons

Kamoda Ragini, watercolour on paper, c. late 18th century, Jaipur

Ragamala miniature paintings personify different Indian classical ragas, traditionally sung during particular time of the day or season. They are a classic mix of poetry, music & fine art from medieval India and literally mean a 'garland of Ragas'. In Kamoda Ragini, a woman is shown waiting with a garland of flowers for her lover (in this case, Lord Krishna) to arrive. This ragini is to be sung in the first quarter of the night, hence the sky is painted in darker shades of blue.

Peacocks are synonymous with the monsoon season in India and this monsoon, we are taking you on a 'peacock trail' through the Museum's collection! Ubiquitous in Indian art from the Harappan period onward, the peacock represents immortality, beauty, royalty, love and fertility.

This image is of a glazed jar made by the students of the JJ School of Art, Mumbai, in the late 19th to early 20th century. Students were trained in various types of clays and glazing techniques. This kind of pottery was in great demand in Europe.
