About this title


Th e art of vernacular painting in India is not only varied and rich but also intriguing for several reasons With such observations the book addresses certain issues like the validity of the historical information on Indian Art that excludes vernacular trends The information on vernacular art in India has either been ignored such as in ancient literary discourses or inadvertently misconstrued within the theoretical purviews of modern days If the hierarchy of the Hindu caste system has marginalised the culture of the lower rung groups the lexicon of twentieth century anthropological studies has seen this art as material evidence of undeveloped societies both creating the same value to be patronised but not art Can art be weighed on a scale of development Arguments have been developed within the specifi c focus on scroll paintings by the itinerant painter bards in Bengal Th e bardic tradition has been known to exist in India since a pre Christian era and still continues within two vibrant trends of vernacular art forms Bangla and Santhal pat Th e book redefi nes and repositions the notion of art with contemporary folk art As the picture Plates are self evident the book draws attention on a world of art that has not been present in Indian Art History
