The Arts of India Virgina Museum Of Fine Arts
The Arts of India Virgina Museum Of Fine Arts
Description
The austere dignity of a Jain Thirthankara sculpture to the rich colors of Rajput Paintings, the Indian collection at the Virgina Museum of Fine Arts represents the scope of Indian art at its most expressive. Widely regarded as one of the finest in the United States, this collection was established in 1968 when funds provided by Paul Mellon enabled the Museum to purchase more than a hundred paintings, sculptures, textiles, and decorative objects from New York art dealer Nasli Heeramancck. Today , the collection of more than 215 carefully selected objects presents a striking survey of Incdian art from ancient times to the early 20th century. The publication of The Arts of India makes these works of art available to national and international audiences. Many beautiful and historically important objects are published here for the first time along with newly discovered information about specific works. Opening essays introduce India and its people, with special emphasis on the development of major religions and the dominant role of religion in art and life.

Also included is a summary of the signs, symbols, and images developed to express religious concepts. Each of the four major areas of the catalogue - sculpture, painting, decorative arts, and textiles - begins with an introductory essay. Individual catalogue entries provide an analysis of the historical, aesthetic, and cultural significance of each object together with documentation of its provenance, exhibition, and publication history.

Texts and inscriptions appearing on works of art are translated in the entries; transliterations and scientific and technical studies of selected works appear in appendices. Written in clear, evocative prose, this comprehensive catalogue offers a vivid picture of Indian art and culture that will engage both scholars and general readers. Dr. Joseph M. Dye III is the E.Rhodes and Leona B.Carpenter Curator of South Asian and Islamic Art at the Virgina Museum of Fine Arts. Studying under the late Dr. Stella Kramrisch, one of the pioneering scholars in the field of Indian art, he received his doctorate in the history of Indian and Southeast Asian art at the Institute of Fine Arts, Newyork Univiersity. The Arts of India is the culmination of years of curatorial research, travel, and commitment to the study and presentation of Indian art. Linguistic scholars Richard J. Cohen and Warren E.Fusfeld have transliterated and translated texts and inscriptions that appear on the objects in the Museum's collection. Dr.Cohen received his doctorate in Oriental studies( with specialities in Indology, Sanskrit, Prakrit, and medieval Indo-Aryan Language) from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Fusefeld holds a doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania with specialization in Indo - Islamic history and Middle Eastern languages(including Persian, Arabic, and Urdu).

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
