ON THE SADANGA CANONS OF PAINTING
ON THE SADANGA CANONS OF PAINTING
Description
About the Book

The present work throws welcome light on an aspect of ancient Indian aesthetics related particularly to Painting. Sadanga signifies collectively the six limbs or constituents of citra that were taken to define, according to the age-old art aestheticians, the essential nature of a pictorial representation. This was the doctrine based on Indian classical criticism of painting in its traditional analyses of aesthetic understanding. According to this theory, Painting, like a living organism, consists in the composition of its Six Limbs, viz.

  1. Differentiation of Form;
  2. Proportion;
  3. Sentiment;
  4. Beauty;
  5. Suchness, and
  6. the Mannerism of Style regarding brush-work and colouring.
Each of the above aspects has been historically investigated, analyzed and explained by the learned author of this book against a thorough background of ancient Indian literature, citing and assessing the relevance of a vast amount of excerpts in their pedagogic notions, chronological contents and specific ideologies in the theory as well as the practice of Indian painting.

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
