Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive, ambitious volume is a seminal survey of the past 100 years of Indian painting. More than 250 large color reproductions present the work of the foremost names in Indian art, from Rabindranath Tagore to the internationally acclaimed M. F. Husain.

Author Neville Tuli makes the entire realm of contemporary Indian art accessible to the general reader by evoking the nuances of the world in which these artists live and work. Each of the book's three sections approaches Indian painting from a different perspective — there is a lavish pictorial survey of the work of 80 key painters, a historical essay, and conversations with 35 of today's leading artists — with each successive part exploring the subject in greater depth. The result is that readers gain a comfortable grasp of the subject, rather than being overwhelmed by it.

Biographical outlines and exhibition histories are provided for the 80 artists whose work is featured, and there is an extensive bibliography. Unprecedented and extensively researched, this book is a must-have reference for all those interested in Indian and contemporary art.
