Indian Miniature Painting
Indian Miniature Painting
Description
From the Jacket:

The rich heritage of Indian miniature painting has long been the delight of collectors, art historians and Indophiles. This book introduces the generally interested, but diffident, reader to the world of Indian miniatures. It journeys into the evolution, development and decline of the schools of Indian miniature painting. The select masterpieces represented here, from collections the world over, allow the viewer to savour the genius of the painters. Of special interest is the context, portrayed through contemporary literature and chronicles which throw light on the lives and times of these master artists.

About the Author:

Anjan Chakraverty lives in Varanasi, dividing his time between painting and teaching art history at the Faculty of Visual Arts, Banaras Hindu University. After a post-graduation in creative painting, he did his doctoral research on Landscape in Indian Miniature Painting.

The first edition of his book Indian Miniature Painting (pub, 1996) was followed by Sacred Buddhist Painting (pub, 1998). He was awarded a research fellowship by the Nehru Trust and the Victoria and Albert Museum to work on The Shikargarh Matif in the Painting and Textile Art of Mughal India. On the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Handicrafts Resurgence in 2002, his monograph Ali Hasan - The Master Naqshaband of Banaras Brocades was released by the President of India. He has also published articles on textile history and nineteenth century Banaras lithographs.

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
