About the author

Ananda Coomaraswamy

The Author Dr. Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy was born in Kent (England) in 1877. He lost his father when he was just two years old. He obtained B.Sc. in Botany and Geology from Wycliff College, England. He came to Ceylon in 1903 as the Director of Mineralogical Survey and Got Doctorate While Working there. He founded the Ceylon Social Reforms Society and Edited the Ceylon National Review. He extended his tours to India to living in an era of new understanding . His Art collections were presented to the Boston Museum in 1917 whereafter he was invited to be ‘the keeper of the Indian Section’ where he continued till his death in 1947. He possessed a scientific turn of mind and a rare insight. His opinions on Indian Art History have been basically accepted in spite of the inadequacy of the evidence then available. A study of his work is essential even today for an insight into the background of Indian Art.
