Art and Swadeshi
Art and Swadeshi
Description
From the Jacket

This compilation of articles is a glaring example of the multidimensional talent of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), who was not only a pioneer historian of Indian art, a master-interpreter, one of the most versatile of this century whose scholarship and knowledge knew no bounds, but a universal man at the same time, the one who urged the Indians to be conscious of their glorious heritage. Coomaraswamy was the harbinger of Indian nationalism but his outlook was neither parochial nor chauvinistic. It had a universal appeal.

The present volume is a rich collection of his thirteen important articles embedded in a single thread: these are: Art and Swadeshi; Swadeshi, True and False; Domestic Handicrafts and Culture; The International Congress of Applied Chemistry 1901 and Aniline Dyes; The Function of School of Art in India-A reply to Mr. Cecil Burns; On the Study of Indian Art; Facial Expression in Indian Sculpture; On Mughal and Rajput Paintings; Night Effects in Indian Pictures; Song-words of a Panjabi Singer; Poems of Rabindranath Tagore; The Modern School of Indian Painting; and Education in Ceylon. Diverse they are in contents, but they all convey a single massage-the churned outcome of a master-mind visualizing things and events in their true perspective.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
