Art of Bengal: Past and Present 1850-2000

Sathi Basu (Editor) Rudrangshu Mukherjee (Editor)
Synopsis Art of Bengal-Past and Present is a testimony of hundred and fifty years of art in the Bengal region. This document is indeed a celebration as well as an educational journey. It celebrates the creative achievements of a region gained under colonial bondage and later in freedom. It is an education because it endeavours to unravel a kind of creative experimentation that has hardly been portrayed holistically before. Featuring over two hundred art plates, some from very rare collections, this book is especially invaluable for art historians, artists, critics and researchers. Exclusive contributions from leading historians and art historians specialising on Bengal make this document a vital source material. 'Art of Bengal-Past and Present', endeavours to capture the psychic dislocations and adjustments, the flair and creative struggle, which are inherent part of a search for an identity, and portrays the events, issues and sources which shaped the creative impulse of the people of Bengal.
