Indian Art: An Overview

Gayatri Sinha (Editor)
Synopsis Indian Art : An Overview is a seminal study on Indian art's entry through modernism into post-modernism. Through fifteen essays, leading tendencies in Indian art are traced from the period of the 1850s onwards. Leading critics and art historians analyse the contributions of Kalighat painting, the Bengal School, Santiniketan and the Madras aesthetic. Through essays on the influence of Raja Ravi Varma, Amrita Sher-Gil and the progressive artists' group, the volume comes up to date with Indian art in the contemporary period. The volume also provides substantial essays on the history of print-making and sculpture in India, and contains some thematic essays that analyse trends in a contemporary social context.
