Sublime Delight through Works of Art: From Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art

Jagdish Mittal (Editor)
Synopsis The art collection of Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art, Hyderabad, has been widely perceived, since its establishment in 1976, as one of the pre-eminent assemblages of Indian art in the world. The Museums was a major lender to the festivals of India in UK (1982) and USA (1985), and a large number of important books and journals have reproduced works from its collection. However, the Museums does not have a building where its art objects can be easily accessible for enjoyment and education. To redress this shortcoming, the Trustees of the Museums have published this monograph, with one hundred and thirty-one of its select objects, most of them unpublished. They comprise miniature paintings, drawings, bronzes, metalware, terracottas, wood-carvings, textiles, glass, ivory and jade objects, produced between the first century BC ad 1900 A.D. Hopefully, this publication, will enable scholars and art connoisseurs it experience some fragrance of the collection.
