ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - An exhibition of art from around India at the University of Michigan Museum of Art honors the legacy of a professor emeritus and his wife.

“The Connoisseurs’ Legacy: The Collection of Nesta and Walter Spink” runs through Sept. 25 at the museum in Ann Arbor. The 121 art objects and paintings displayed include miniature Indian paintings, terracotta sculptures, South Asian folk art pieces and rare James McNeill Whistler prints.

Walter Spink is a scholar of history of the Ajanta caves that are dedicated to Buddha in the state of Maharashtra in India. He and his wife spent time as curators at the University of Michigan Museum of Art and were leading authorities on Whistler’s lithographs.

Walter Spink retired from the University of Michigan in 2000.
