The book also has an historical essay, conversations with 35 of today's leading Indian artists, biographical outlines and exhibition histories.

From Booklist:

Few outsiders imagine contemporary art in India, picturing instead the classic sculptures and miniatures of centuries past. But there has long been a vital modern arts community at work in this vast and variegated land, and their works will capture the attention and appreciation of Westerners just as surely as the recent blooming of Indian literature enthralled non-Indian readers. Tuli himself is an outsider looking in at the realm of visual art by virtue of the fact that he lived as many years in England as in India and studied not art but economics and development theory at Oxford University. This foundation makes for less-than-graceful commentary as Tuli employs a welter of abstractions in limning a historical and aesthetic context for his discussion of contemporary art, but once readers become acclimated to his gnarled prose, they will recognize the great wealth of information he provides. Happily, nearly a third of the text consists of interviews with artists, and the color plates are nothing less than extraordinary, documenting nearly 100 years of Indian painting in nearly as many styles. Donna Seaman

From Library Journal:

Art is a living tradition in India, yet there has been scant international attention paid to work from the 20th century. To help remedy the problem, Tuli, founder of the Tuli Foundation for Holistic Education in Art (HEART), has produced the first in a series of publications geared toward broadening understanding in the West. As a survey, it is both monumental and comprehensive. Tuli details Indian art history, beginning with the Bengal School and moving through Indian Modernism up to the present. He also captures the essence of a uniquely Indian aesthetic that harmonizes past with present?something that is not easy to do. Of the more than 100 artists featured, nearly all are illustrated, and many are interviewed. Tuli's concise yet clear writing and nonlinear approach well suit the scope of the subject. Though it is expensive, this volume presents artists most of us have never seen but should. Recommended for academic, art school, and large public libraries.?Susan M.

Book Description ABRAMS March 1998, 1998. Hardcover. Condition: New. This comprehensive, ambitious volume is a seminal survey of the past 100 years of Indian painting. More than 250 large color reproductions present the work of the foremost names in Indian art, from Rabindranath Tagore to the internationally acclaimed M. F. Husain. Author Neville Tuli makes the entire realm of contemporary Indian art accessible to the general reader by evoking the nuances of the world in which these artists live and work. Each of the book's three sections approaches Indian painting from a different perspective -- there is a lavish pictorial survey of the work of 80 key painters, a historical essay, and conversations with 35 of today's leading artists -- with each successive part exploring the subject in greater depth. The result is that readers gain a comfortable grasp of the subject, rather than being overwhelmed by it. Biographical outlines and exhibition histories are provided for the 80 artists whose work is featured, and there is an extensive bibliography. Unprecedented and extensively researched, this book is a must-have reference for all those interested in Indian and contemporary art. Never opened!!!. Seller Inventory # 91139
