Description

This volume, fifth in the series of the illustrated manuscripts of the Gita-Govinda provide the basis of an indepth analysis of the nature of relationship of the text and image. The multiple pictorial expression of a single text in different regions and different periods, have unraveled many hitherto unnoticed aspects of Indian miniature painting.

As part of the project on Gita-Govinda and the Indian Artistic Traditions, four monographs have been published on the illustrated manuscripts on the Gita-Govinda. These are (i) The Jaur Gita-Govinda (National Museum, New Delhi, 1980), (ii) Miniatures from a Rajasthani Gita-Govinda (Sawai Man Singh II City Palace Museum, Jaipur,1982), and (iii) The Bundi Gita-Govinda (Bharat Kala Bhavan,Varansai,1982), (iv) Assam Gita-Govinda (Publication Board, Guwahati, 1986). The volume of Mewari Gita-Govinda is the fifth of the series. Two others, one on illustrated manuscripts of the Gita-Govinda from Orissa and the other on the illustrated manuscript of the late Rajashtani School, Jaipur and Amber are in the press. Hopefully these and three others relating to the Pahari and Bengal School will complete the series.

While the larger project on the Gita-Govinda and the Indian Artistic Traditions comprehends the totality of the impact of this great work in all the arts and endeavours to trace the routes of travel of the work from one part of India to the other, the illustrated manuscripts of the Gita-Govinda provide the basis of an indepth analysis of the nature of relationship of the text and image.
