Quantity:

The Flemish artist Baltazard Solvyns, residing in Calcutta from 1791 until 1804, produced a remarkable series of etchings depicting the people and culture he observed. First published in Calcutta in 1796 and 1799, and then in a four volume edition, Les Hindous, published in Paris, 1808-12, the etchings include portrayals of 36 musical instruments as well as prints of the nautch and a Hindu "dancing girl". These etchings represent, in most instances, the first illustrations of the instruments and the manner in which they are played. Hardgrave and Slawek here reproduce these prints, together with Solvyns's descriptive text, and their own commentary for each plate.ABOUT THE AUTHORS:ROBERT L. HARDGRAVE, Jr., is the Temple Professor of the Humanities in Government and Asian Studies at The University of Texas at Austin.STEPHEN M. SLAWEK, Associate Professor of Music and Asian Studies at The University of Texas at Austin, is an ethnomusicologist specializing on the music cultures of South Asia.
