AESTHETIC PRINCIPLES OF INDIAN ART
AESTHETIC PRINCIPLES OF INDIAN ART
Description

Excerpts From Reviews:

"I am glad to note that you are among the few Indologists who are continuing the line art study as initiated by Dr. Coomaraswamy and Prof. V.S. Agrawala. You have culled out significant passages to determine the development of aesthetic ideas and principles in the Vedic literature. The work can be a source of credit to any scholar. I only wish and hope that you will continue your studies for future periods as well."

 

Prof. Lallanji Gopal
Professor & Head
Dept. of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology
Banaras Hindu University

"Dr. Prthvi Kumar Agrawala deserves to be congratulated on his commendable attempt in his Aesthetic Principles of India Art to provide a perceptive and extremely suggestive analysis of the Principles of Aesthetics in the Indian context. With a vast and penetrative scholarships he has shown, he has shown, by interpreting the Rgvedic hymns, the Brahmanas and the Upanisadic literature, the roots and the development of the principles of fine art. He has also convincingly demonstrated how the later Indian Poetics (Alankara Sastra) and other forms of aesthetic expression (like Painting, Sculpture, Music, Dance, etc.) are but the elaborations and emendations of these suggestions found implicitly in the Vedic literature."

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
