Octavo, softbound, 252 pp. Fine. The grave, sensuous and infinitely varied arts of India have long been admired in the West...Professor Craven tells the story clearly and vividly from the first, still mysterious beginnings in the Indus valley, through the great masterpieces of Buddhist and Hindu art to the coming of Islam, the eclectic culture of the Mughal court and the golden age of Indian miniature painting. Much of this art is immediately accessible to the outsider, but much is aslo enigmatic, needing interpretation and guidance before it can be enjoyed in depth: the strange pantheon of the Hindu gods, the subtle insights of Buddhist mysticism or the complex symbolism of the miniatures.
Title: Indian Art. A Concise History.
