Central Indian Paintings in The Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art

John Seyller (Author) Jagdish Mittal (Author)

This impressively researched, eloquently written, and sumptuously illustrated catalogue of Central Indian paintings and drawings in the Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art in Hyderabad is an important contribution to the study of Indian miniature painting. It presents some of the finest examples of so-called "Malwa"-style paintings, which are properly assigned to Bundel khand, and provides the first in-depth study of painting at such centres as Orchha, Datia, and Sitamau. The extensive section on Raghogarh painting is truly groundbreaking, and includes a comprehensive discussion of the Raghogarh style in its historical context, incisive analyses of many unpublished masterpieces, and the identification of the first major artist to work in that state. Jagdish and Kamla Mittal, an artist couple with exceptionally discerning taste, assembled this unparallelled collection of paintings over a period of more than sixty years. The superb quality of the illustrations, the insightfulness of the text, and the inclusion of key comparative material make this book essential to anyone who enjoys or studies Indian painting.
