Preface

India’s large base of traditional artisans and weavers spread over different states in the country allows for an incredible range and diversity of artistic traditions and heritage. In this modern age when the definition of a market is fast changing and expanding due to rapidly evolving technological innovations handmade items are facing stiff competition even in the traditional market place. Given the significance of India’s rich cultural heritage is its worthwhile to undertake a journey to understand how the traditional arts and crafts of Madhya Pradesh have developed over time what their status is today and what the future holds for these aesthetic creations.

Crafts are a true expression of a community’s cultural identity. Traditionally artisans and weavers used natural and locally available resources combined their creative skill set and intellect to provide goods and services in many diverse forms. Traditional craft works often depict the social and aesthetic character of a society and have been sustained over time not only because of their rich symbolic content be it religious or socio cultural but also because of he contributions to the socio economic growth of the region. The arts and crafts of any region are thus inextricably linked to society as products and sustenance of culture.

Arts and crafts Under British Rule

Between 1850 and 1875 the British developed a number of art schools for training Indian artisans under the aegis of the department of public intervention. Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) served as principal of the Mayo School of Arts in Lahore but he also took a serious interest in stimulation and sustaining traditional Indian skills such as wood carving furniture making and metal craft. In 1851 the great exhibition at London’s Crystal Palace included the display of textiles metal craft wood craft jewellery and enamel products arousing English interest in Indian arts and crafts. In 1883 the government of India actively sought to encourage arts and crafts and sponsored the publication of the illustrated Journal of Indian art and teaching. In 1886 a royal commission was organized. Led by the prince of Wales the colonial and Indian exhibit was displayed in London once again showcasing the excellence of Indian craftsmanship.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
