About this title:

Synopsis: The Diverse World of Indian Pointing is a simulative and perceptive survey of different aspects of Indian painting. Authorities of Indian painting in India and aboard have contributed essays to this volume in honour of Dr. V.C. Ohri, the first curator of Bhuri Singh Museum, Chamba who was also the founding curator of the Himachal State Museum, Shimla. The publication covers a range of subjects and their various aspects relating to the tradition of Indian painting both chronologically and school-wise. Mughal, Rajasthani, Pahari, Deccani, Malwa - the famed school of Central India and Buddhist manuscript painting have been included. There are also essays on murals of Mattancherry Palace, Chamba rumal embroidery, the craft of wood carving and preservation. These articles which reflect the diverse world of Indian painting are a befitting tribute to Dr. Ohri whose contribution to the cause of documenting and preserving Indian painting is second to none.
