Through the medium of art, the history of India is presented with accuracy and emotion.

Book Description Encyclopaedia Britannica, London, UK, 2003. Hardbound. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This book is a culmination of Encyclopaedia Britannica’s effort to write anew, the history of Indian visual art. It includes not only a narrative tracing of the history but also briefer articles on specific sites and individuals. "Histories of art occasionally fail to recognize a dynamic present. That is all the more the case with Asian art, which is too often deemed to have lost its Asian-ness when it becomes part of a global contemporary art movement, forgetting, of course, that India, like most of Asia, has been linked with a global culture since protohistoric times. This volume, therefore, is very much more inclusive in order to recognize visual culture broadly conceived rather than just what more conventionally might be called art. "Art of India is intended as more than a picture book. It is a book about art. Renowned world-experts have written the very rich content. To ensure comprehensive coverage, the text has been separated under three section headings; historical record, genres in context, and guide to the arts. The second section addresses Indian art by medium. Section three has short articles covering all such places and individuals that have influenced the Indian subcontinent’s visual art over the years. Printed Pages: 507 with numerous colour plates. Size: 22 Cms x 28 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 028418
