Indian Art

This beautiful book offers a striking and unusual view of a wide array of Indian art. It highlights--close up and in colour--outstanding examples of design, workmanship and craft in dramatic sculptures of metal, stone and wood as well as sumptuous paintings and textiles. By illustrating the complete artefact as well as exceptional features through the use of enlarged details--sometimes virtually invisible to the naked eye--intriguing insights and unusual comparisons can be made. Ideal as a souvenir or introduction to any museum or gallery visit, this book will also provide endless creative inspiration.
