Description

This hugely informative work takes a trip though 4500 years or more of Indian art. Account of visits to museums and galleries allow us to enjoy the beauties and also trace the lines of continuity and change running through thousands of years. An entertaining introduction to the magic of lines, colors and forms.

My friend Munia will be thirteen on her next birthday in January. She has been taking painting lessons for the last couple of years. In the beginning, it was a chore for her, just doing something her parents wanted her to do. But suddenly she has begun to feel the magic, of lines, colors, forms. She is full of questions about India. When did it begin? Who were the artists? For whom were these works of art made.

This work seeks to satisfy her curiosity by taking a trip through 4500 years or more of Indian art.
