Art and Swadeshi
Art and Swadeshi
Description
From the Jacket

This compilation of articles is a glaring example of the multidimensional talent of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), who was not only a pioneer historian of Indian art, a master-interpreter, one of the most versatile of this century whose scholarship and knowledge knew no bounds, but a universal man at the same time, the one who urged the Indians to be conscious of their glorious heritage. Coomaraswamy was the harbinger of Indian nationalism but his outlook was neither parochial nor chauvinistic. It had a universal appeal.

The present volume is a rich collection of his thirteen important articles embedded in a single thread: these are: Art and Swadeshi; Swadeshi, True and False; Domestic Handicrafts and Culture; The International Congress of Applied Chemistry 1901 and Aniline Dyes; The Function of School of Art in India-A reply to Mr. Cecil Burns; On the Study of Indian Art; Facial Expression in Indian Sculpture; On Mughal and Rajput Paintings; Night Effects in Indian Pictures; Song-words of a Panjabi Singer; Poems of Rabindranath Tagore; The Modern School of Indian Painting; and Education in Ceylon. Diverse they are in contents, but they all convey a single massage-the churned outcome of a master-mind visualizing things and events in their true perspective.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
