Synopsis Rajput Art, in its peculiar forms, is the product of a special inspiration, reflecting the self-control and sweet serenity of Indian life and the aristocratic organization of Indian Society. In the fineness of colour, brilliancy of brush-work, display of passions and the exhibit of emotions this art stands incomparable. Rajput painting (1916) BY A.K. Coomaraswamy is a pioneer work on Rajput Art pertaining to Hindu painting of Rajaputana and the Punjab Himalayas, from 1300 to 1900 A.D. It presents a clear picture of Indian people, their manners, customs, costumes, and their peculiar traits. This masterly study, indispensable for students of miniature painting has remained long out of print and there has been a persistent demand for its early reprint.

Khandalavala has been appended. The foreword offers a sort of reunion with regard to certain classifications of Schools and occurate dating in this field of study and will be welcomed by the reader.
