Quantity:

This concise, yet lively, new survey guides the reader through over 2000 years of Indian art and architecture. A rich artistic tradition is fully explored through the Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, colonial, and contemporary periods, incorporating discussion of modern Bangladesh and Pakistan, traditional women artists, tribal artists, and the decorative arts.The very particular character of Indian art is set within its cultural and religious milieu, raising important issues about the profound differences between Western and Indian ideas of beauty and eroticism in art.

About the Author:

PARTHA MITTER is Professor in Art History at the University of Sussex. He is the author of Much Maligned Monsters: History of European Reactions to Indian Art (1977) and Art and Nationalism in Colonial India 1850-1922: Occidental Orientations (1994), as well as numerous articles on various aspects of art, identity, and representation. He has also lectured at many of the major universities around the world.REVIEWS: "A very readable and intelligent survey of Indian art in all its many forms. A new way of understanding the unique story of Indian art is presented where art production and patronage are clearly placed in their social context. This is the first book to fully cover the colonial and contemporary periods, and the history of western reactions to Indian art." DEBORAH SWALLOW
