The world of art is complex and challenging, more so in India because the documentation here is remarkably thin; whatever exists is widely scattered and difficult to gather. Addressing these issues, this volume traces the long, rich, varied tradition of reflections on Indian art. Organized into thematic sections, the contributions range from texts on iconography and aesthetics and excerpts bearing upon our understanding of patronage and artistic practices, to information on artists and early writings that have shaped our thinking on Indian art.

Description

The world of art is complex and challenging, more so in India because the documentation here is remarkably thin; whatever exists is widely scattered and difficult to gather. Addressing these issues, this volume brings together an astounding body of material consisting not only of speculations or theories, but also of original, primary sources. Between the pages we hear sages speak of the interrelationships of the arts, practitioners record measurements of units of time and space, iconographers lay down rules and practices, artists record their experiences, and patrons recount their delights.

Slowly, as one dips into these sources, one can hear the past speak, and see the arts of India, which have been lost to history, come alive.
