9780917046605: The Arts of India

Written in clear, evocative prose that sensitively describes the VMFA's renowned collection, this striking survey of Indian art and culture will engage both scholars and general readers. From ivory sculptures to miniature paintings and lavishly illustrated manuscripts, this book features many beautiful and historically important objects, several of which are published here for the first time. Each of the four major areas of the catalogue--"sculpture, painting, decorative arts, and textiles--"begins with an introductory essay. Individual catalogue entries provide an analysis of the art historical, aesthetic, and cultural significance of each object together with documentation of its provenance, exhibition, and publication history. The opening essays introduce India and its people, with special emphasis on the development of major religions and the dominant role of religion in art and life. Also included is a summary of the signs, symbols, and images developed to express religious concepts.

Review:

"[T]his monumental tome is a worthy addition to art collections in academic and large public libraries.―Library Journal"This is among the best catalogues of an Indian collection that I know and will serve as an important research tool internationally.

(Milo C. Beach, Former Director, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.)
