Description

This richly illustrated volume presents over 200 of the finest treasures from the Indian Art Collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Indian art collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum are unrivalled outside the Indian subcontinent. This richly illustrated volume, written by the Museum's curators, presents over 200 of the finest treasures from the collection in a new study which discusses the arts of Mughal, Rajput and British India in the social and cultural context of their time.

The book begins with a survey of the visual arts in pre-Mughal India, then turns to the court arts of the Mughals and the provincial courts of Rajasthan, the Deccan and the Punjab. The European intervention is studied through the great textile trade and the impact of the Indian arts on European taste is assessed through the Great Exhibitions of the last nineteenth century.

This volume has 185 color and 16 black and white illustrations, and 3 maps.
