Glass Paintings: An Ephemeral Art in India

Samita Gupta (Author)
Synopsis In the book, Glass Paintings : An Ephemeral Art in India, the author has recorded the hitherto unpublished glass paintings found in the collection of the Bharat Itihas Samshodhak Mandal of Pune. These paintings represent a novel technique; these are done in oil rather than in water as was the earlier practice. The choice of the themes is also a departure from the traditional ones. They consist mainly of portraits representing an exotic fashion which also attempts to bring out the personality of the subject. This is a pioneering effort by the author to study an important but rather unknown aspect of the culture of the nineteenth century in western India.
