Overview for Piety and Splendour: Sikh Heritage in Art

This is not a general survey of the Art of the Sikhs, but a serious, meaningful inquiry into some of the most significant aspects of the subject.  Explored in it, through a wide range of works of art and other artifacts - paintings and drawings, textiles, arms, jewellery, coins, among them - are ideas that run, like a golden thread, through Sikh are and thought, Starting with Guru Nanak's Encounters, as outlined in the Janamsakhis - traditional accounts of the life of Guru Nanak - and Portraits of the Gurus, from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh, the book, like the exhibition to which it serves as a catalogue, moves from Piety, through the theme of Valour, to that of Splendour, ending with the Earthiness that one associates with the Sikhs and the Punjab.  Some exceptional objects, all drawn from Indian collections, are featured here, each of them described and interpreted with care and sensitivity.
