  • 3. The Last Harvest A RT Paintings of Rabindranath Tagore Edited by R Siva Kumar Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941) is one of India’s best known cultural icons. He was an influential national figure of India, whose genius has transcended boundaries. Besides being a poet, he was a novelist, a writer of short stories and plays, a composer of songs, an essayist, and a philosopher. Painting was the last art form to enter his rich creative life. In mid-20th century, Rabindranath was the first Indian artist to be extensively exhibited in the west. This publication is produced in conjunction with three travelling exhibitions of Rabindranath Tagore’s paintings, organized as part of India’s National Commemoration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. The exhibitions are travelling to eight cities across the world. Along with over 200 works by Rabindranath, this unique volume brings together essays by leading scholars from around the world, which lend insight into Rabindranath Tagore as a painter as well as locate his paintings within the larger framework of his multifaceted creative work. R Siva Kumar is an art historian and curator. He is Professor of Art History at Visva-Bharati in Santiniketan. He has written extensively on modern Indian Art and is the author of more than ten books. with contributions from France Bhattacharya, Uma Das Gupta, Martin Kampchen, Lars-Christian Koch, Rajeev Lochan, Kris K.

  • 4. Wonder of the Age A RT Master Painters of India 1100–1900 John Guy and Jorrit Britschgi This vividly illustrated publication features 110 works by many of the most eminent painters in the history of Indian art. These remarkable paintings, dating from 1100 to 1900, were selected according to identifiable artists, and they refute the long-held view of anonymous authorship in Indian art. Traditionally, Indian paintings have been classified by regional styles or dynastic periods, with an emphasis on subject matter. Stressing the combined tools of connoisseurship and inscriptional evidence, the pioneering research reflected in this book has identified 40 individual artists and their oeuvres through the analysis of style. The introductory essay outlines the origins of early Indian painting of the first millennium, which set the scene for the development of the art of the book. The sections that follow examine manuscript painting as it evolved from palm-leaf to paper, the emergence of traditional painting as an independent art form, and its demise with the coming of photography. Biographies of the artists and a glossary of their major literary sources provide valuable context. The book is a companion volume to the exhibition on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from September 2011 to January 2012, prior to which it was at Museum Rietberg. John Guy is Florence and Herbert Irving Curator of the Arts of South and Southeast Asia, Department of Asian Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

  • 5. The Imperial Image A RT Paintings for the Mughal Court Milo Cleveland Beach Books have been treasured for centuries in the Islamic world, as precious objects worthy of royal admiration. This was especially true in Muslim India, where generations of Mughal emperors commissioned and collected volumes of richly illuminated manuscripts and lavishly illustrated folios. They assembled workshops of the leading artists and calligraphers to produce the books that filled their extensive libraries. Today, those works remain a vibrant part of India’s cultural and artistic history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In this revised and expanded edition of his popular 1981 book, Dr Milo Beach presents the superb collection of Mughal painting in the Freer Gallery of Art. He adds many of the outstanding works that entered the collection with the opening of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in 1987. Together, the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Smithsonian’s museums of Asian art, have the distinction of being one of the world’s leading repositories of Mughal art. An introductory essay examines the Mughal art of the book and traces the contributions of a succession of rulers in Muslim India. Brief artist biographies and an extensive bibliography complete this updated volume. Milo Cleveland Beach, a museum director, teacher, and scholar of Indian painting, has written, lectured, and organized exhibitions internationally on paintings from Rajasthan and the Mughal court.

  • 6. Kalighat Paintings A RT Edited by Suhashini Sinha and Professor C Panda Kalighat painting evolved as a unique painting style in the rapidly urbanizing cityscape of 19th-century Kolkata. Reflecting a new language, these paintings recorded the changes in lifestyles, values, and a new visual vocabulary brought forth by lithographic presses and studio photography. The artists who developed the Kalighat painting style were traditional scroll painters (patuas). In catering to the transient, urban populace, the artists let go of their linear narrative styles and adopted single pictures with one or two figures. The traditionally inherited techniques and iconography were blended with the use of watercolours and western academic shading, to show frames of a changing society. This volume accompanies the touring ‘Kalighat Paintings’ exhibition organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in collaboration with the Victoria Memorial Hall, Kolkata in late 2011. The V&A, London holds the single largest collection of Kalighat paintings, and this is the first exhibition of the collection in India. Best examples from the two collections, and also contemporary Kalighat paintings are illustrated in this book. Supporting essays reveal the importance of these collections, highlight the era in which this painting thrived, and the techniques that were used by the artists. Suhashini Sinha is Assistant Curator at the V&A, London. Prof. C Panda is Secretary and Curator of Victoria Memorial Hall, Kolkata. with contributions from Piyasi Bharasa, Dr Lucio Burgio, Jyotindra Jain and Mike Wheeler.

  • 7. The Purple Lotus FICT ION and Other Stories Ratna Rao Shekar Thirteen stories that are vignettes of life: of men and women who love, dream, and more importantly, who move with the natural ebb of life. Can someone you met on a transatlantic flight be your soul mate? why is it that two people fail to connect in any meaningful way despite their best intentions and efforts? How can a young boy come to terms with the fact that his dead father is never going to come back? what of the ailing man who can’t stop thinking of the young girl who was a part of his youthful fantasy? How does a conservatively brought-up Indian girl living in Manhattan deal with a live- in partner? These and other refreshing stories from this debut collection explore the finer aspects of love, longing, regrets of failed connections, in ways that the reader will identify with. Set in different cities and towns across the country and across countries, these are journeys of relationships, migrations, and anticipation. with engaging moments drawn from memories and fantasies, the stories try to make sense of past and present, of cultural roots and the demands of modern life, and of the passage of time when you want to keep it within grasp.

  • 10. The Relationship between Science and Art NON FICT ION Pushpa Mittra Bhargava and Chandana Chakrabarti Science and art are both manifestations of beauty and creativity. Both are related to nature and are products of evolution. Understanding natural phenomena and the appreciation of beauty has conferred an evolutionary advantage to the human species. As mankind has evolved intellectually and socially and as science has progressed, artistic creations by humans have tended towards increasing harmony with nature and they have become more abstract— like mathematics, which is the abstraction of all sciences. The authors of this unusual work postulate some critical ideas on science, art and aesthetics, and establish that we need both, a scientific temper and the temper of art. Evidence to support these theses is drawn from mathematics, physics, studies in molecular biology, and also from music, fine art and design. Readers are taken through lucid prose with the help of illustrations of natural phenomenon such as spiral galaxies, spider web, the Fibonacci series and fractals in lightning, and of products of human creativity such as paintings of masters like Picasso, Husain and Escher, musical pieces, textile fragments and Ajanta caves frescoes. Pushpa Mittra Bhargava is among India’s most reputed scientists. He is also a writer, thinker, institution builder and consultant and is widely regarded as the architect of modern biology and molecular biology in India. Chandana Chakrabarti is a communications expert, columnist and writer, whose writings have covered a variety of fields and issues.
