Indian Art

Partha Mitter

Oxford History of Art

  • Only survey to cover fully all the key periods in Indian art - including colonial and contemporary art.
  • Only survey to discuss women and art in detail: from tribal artists to contemporary feminist artists.
  • Very enjoyable to read - manages to cover 5000 years of Indian art in a clear and succinct way while retaining much fascinating detail.
  • An accurate story of Indian art - uniquely taking into account the Indian approach to life and art as opposed to imposing often incongruous western values on an entirely different culture - for example regarding responses to beauty and eroticism in art.
