Description

This work studies the progression of artistic styles of paintings and sculptures from pre-history to the modern period. Documentation of the sights bearing a marked cultural and historical importance have been incorporated to highlight the flourishing ties that India maintained during ancient and medieval periods with the surrounding countries.

The present volume attempts to illustrate the sociopolitical and economic undercurrents, which prompted a change in the nature and character of Indian traditions. For instance, the western idea of democracy, coupled with industrialization, also brought a radical change in Indian life and culture, with the result that Indian aesthetic consciousness and artistic creativity came under the perpetual flux of modernism, in which the domination of experimentalism of material culture prevails supreme.
