This highly colourful and informative guide has a number of rather remarkable virtues. First it is intelligently planned and written. Think you might need some help in understanding what you see when you get there? After descriptions of India’s major institutions there is a useful reference list containing the names of figures most likely to be encountered in Indian art. You already know what you want to see and only need helps in where to see it. At the end of the book there is a chronological list of artistic periods with the names of the museums most likely to be useful in their study. It is hardly surprising to discover that the author has a background in both the history and teaching of art. Both her professional knowledge and awareness of how this should be best put across is unmistakeably apparent in this guide. And what splendours India possesses! Early Harappan miniatures, Buddhist art, the often sumptuous buildings in which the collections are housed, paintings, sculpures – all are beautifully illustrated in a relatively compact format. An attractively illustrated and comprehensive guide to the fabulous legacy of the Museum of India. This is a first rate book for anyone planning a trip to study the art of what is probably one of the world’s most impressive and influential civilizations. Information concerning the cultural history of India which includes the Iron Age, the birth and spread of Buddhism, and the rise of the empires. Over 100 superb photographs covering most aspects of Indian art.
