The Art of India

The Art of India

by Nigel Cawthorne




The diverse art of the Indian subcontinent spans many centuries and a variety of styles. The Art of India is an elegantly designed account of the major movements that have influenced and affected the face of India since ancient times. The book covers Hindu Art from the Temples and Literature of One of the World's Oldest Religions, the Rise of Sculpture and Monumental Art from the Mauryan Dynasty, Bhuddist Shrines and Janism, the Mughals, and Islamic Art. With a collection of more than sixty spectacular pictures, The Art of India illustrates the major works, whether expressed in paint, clay, wood, metal, stone, or brick, that characterize the art of one of the oldest civilizations in the world.
