INDIAN SCULPTURE
INDIAN SCULPTURE
Description
From the Jacket :

Through the centuries, sculpture in India has been a dominant expression of the people and their land. Today India provides a cultural continuity that has survived a long and diversified history, in which changes have occurred, old images and artistic expressions have been altered and new elements and influences have been absorbed, enriched and variegating the cultural strands without ever breaking them. Sculpture, especially as an art form, was granted extensive patronage by the Indus valley Civilization, the Mauryas, the Satavahanas, the Sungas, the Kushans, the Guptas, the Chalukyas, the Rashtrakutas, the Pallavas, the Cholas, and still continues to thrive in contemporary India.

Indian Sculpture is a richly illustrated book that reproduces some of the finest examples of Indian sculpture, with an extensive commentary on the importance of the art of carving, modeling and casting in the Indian civilization for over 4000 years.

About the Author :

Dr. Grace Morley was the founder director of the National Museum, New Delhi. She was almost 80 when she wrote Indian Sculpture. Yet such was her eye for detail that she personally vetted each picture to ensure that the colours matched the original object. It was this meticulous attention to detail that makes this book a collector's piece.

Under Dr. Grace Morley's care, the National Museum gained recognition as one of the most important institutions of its kind, not only in India but in Asia as well. Under her care, museums in India came to e recognized not only as abodes of cultural objects and research but also as disseminators of knowledge.

DN DUBE is a highly acclaimed photographer who has authored several books.
