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."

"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."
