Description
About the Book

This volume, a visual journey, through its meticulous deliberations on the wall paintings and miniature painting of Bundelkhand makes us reminisce the footfalls of valiant Bundella kings, ankle bells of elegant court-dancers, evocative poetry of mabakavi Kesvadas and the brillint artistic skills of mural painters and many other historical events. These find their excellent expressions beyond the palaces of Orchha and Datia, and in amny jagirs and thikanas such as Rehali, Madanpur, Chhatarpur, Marsingharh, Ajayagarh, Todi Fatehpur, Samthar, Jhansi and Rannod as well. Aglimpse of Malwa painting is a value-add.

The murals, a living art, more democratic and decidedly popular, were the artistic idiom of Bundelkaand. It was art for the raja and the praja, depicting not only Puranic stories, but also regal affairs and the day-to-day life of ordinary people.

Despite the fact that time, the vicissitudes of weather and vandalism have taken their tool on the murals, a cultivated aesthete can restore life in them. The book candidly reminds us a truth: The paintings of Bundelkhand are half remembered, half forgotten and amny yet to be discovered.

Thus, this book should inspire art connoisseurs, art historians, art students, and laymen alike, paving the way for further researches and studies on the forgotten legacies of Bundelkhand.
