In this critical study of modern Indian art, the author touches on the natural distinctions between the Indian and European traditions. A generous selection of illustrations accompanies the text.
The fulfillment of a modern Indian artist's wish to be a part of a living tradition will not come of itself. It calls for concerted effort. The author, an eminent Indian artist, offers a theoretical ground work for that effort. In the course of his study, he dwells upon the attempts of several thinkers and artists to identify an Indian artistic tradition.
A generous selection of illustrations accompanying the text greatly contributes to the enjoyment and understanding of author's discourse.
