Overview for Art, Icon and Architecture in South Asia: Essays in Honour of Dr. Devangana Desai (In 2 Volumes)

These two volumes of papers by a galaxy of scholars are a tribute to the eminent art historian Dr. Devangana Desai, who has made an invaluable contribution in the field of Indian art, iconology and architecture.

The thirty-seven thematic essays in Art, Icon and Architecture in South Asia include many by senior and very illustrious scholars as well as some by younger researchers who are now making their mark. They are divided into five broad groups, in each the essays are arranged in a more or less chronological order. The first comprises four articles relating to Buddhist monuments and icons. The second group is the largest with seventeen essays that explore different aspects of iconography, images and narrative reliefs. The next is a set of nine papers on monuments, ranging from temples, to the transmission of architectural knowledge and even to water structures. The following group includes four papers that relate to painting, three of them touch on south Indian murals and one on miniature painting. The last group comprises three papers of a more general nature, dealing with the portrayal of women in Indian art, rasa, and the leap required to be made from iconography to iconology. The inclusion of the latter paper is significant given the seminal contribution that Dr. Devangana Desai has made to iconology through her book Religious Imagery of Khajuraho (1996).

Bringing together as it does a large number of papers on a variety of themes related to Indian art, architecture and iconography, this book will be of much interest both to scholars as well as to students of art and aesthetics of South Asia.
