Epigraphy and Art

S.B. Singh (Author)
Synopsis The first attempt of its kind unravelling the various facets of the Indian art gleaned in the epigraphs is an in-depth study based on the original sources. The present study encompasses the political strife, temple architecture, sculptural art, socio-economic condition, religion, patrons and donors, artists, artisans and architects and the management of architectural structures as reflected in the early-medieval period, the age of turmoil and transition. The mostly informative, critical and comprehensive and immensely readable analysis bringing latest archaeological, epigraphic and literary insights bears a rich testimony to Dr. Singh's multifaceted experience in the field of art and archaeology. A book of merit, it should prove to be useful to scholars interested in the art history.
