Piety and Splendour Sikh Heritage in Art
Piety and Splendour Sikh Heritage in Art
Description

From the Jacket:

This is not a general survey of the art of the Sikhs, but a serious, meaningful inquiry into some of the most significant aspects of the subject.

Explored in it through a wide range of works of art and other artefacts paintings and drawings, textiles, arms, jewellery,coins, among them - are ideas that run, like a golden thread, through Sikh art and thought.

Starting with Guru Nanak's Encounters, as outlined in the Janamsakhis - traditional accounts of the life of Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh, the book, like the exhibition to which it serves as a catalogue, moves from Piety, through the theme of Valour, to that of Splendour, ending with the Earthiness that one associates with the Sikhs and the Punjab.

Some exceptional objects, all drawn from Indian collections, are featured here, each of them described and interpreted with care and sensitivity.

About the Author:

B.N.Goswamy, distinguished art historian, was till recently Professor of Art History at the Punjab University, Chandigarh. A leading authority on Indian art, his work covers a wide range, and is regarded, especially in the area of Pahari Painting, as having influenced much thinking. He has written extensively. Among his publications are: Pahari Painting The Family as the Basis of Style (Marg, Bombay, 1968); Painters at the Sikh Court(Wiesbaden, 1975; reissued New Delhi, 1999); Essence of Indian Art(San Francisco, 1986); Wonders of a Golden Age (Zurich, 1987); Pahari Masters: Court Painters of Northern India (Zurich, 1992); Indian costumes in the collection of the Calico Museum of Textiles(Ahmedabad,1993); Nainsukh of Guler: A great Indian Painter from a small Hill State(Zurich,1997); and Painted Visions: The Goenka Collection of Indian Painting(New Delhi,1999). Professor Goswamy has been responsible for major exhibitions on Indian art in Paris, San Francisco and Zurich, and has taught, as Visiting Professor, at the Universities of Heidelberg, Pennsylvania, California (at Berkeley and Los Angeles), Zurich, and Texas( at Austin).

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!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
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
