About the authors

A. Ramachandran

The well-known artist and writer A Ramachandran grew up among the temple murals of Kerala.  But he began to look at them with the inquiring insight of a scholar following his exposure to the art traditions of India and the world as a student of Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan.  He realized the urgency of documenting the existing murals to save them from oblivion.  Following a research project of the Visva Bharati University in the early Sixties, Ramachandran regularly visited the major and the mor obscure sites for the next 40 years.  He has written this book with profound scholarship in spite of his busy schedule as a painter and sculptor.  And he has brought to the study the aesthetic understanding and the sensitive eye of the artist.  Ramachandran’s repertoire as a writer includes delightful children's stories, imaginative autobiographical pieces and perceptive art historical essays.  Ramachandran, with his wife Chameli, lives and works in Delhi.
