Synopsis: This is a survey of the past century of Indian painting, incorporating reproductions of 250 works by 80 artists from Rabindranath Tagore to M.F. Husain. The book also has an historical essay, conversations with 35 of today's leading Indian artists, biographical outlines and exhibition histories. The author's aim is to make 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.
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.
