Description

The Painter in Ancient India, Cmaraswamy Memorial Lectures, delivered by C Sivaramamurti in the Lalit Kala Akademi, is a study of the personality, life, ideals, characteristics, professional equipment, aesthetic outlook and other important factors that characterize and single out the painter as a noble theme of study.

The book with its rich documentation and liberal illustrations elucidates in an impressive manner the importance of painting, its antiquity, its techniques, its suggestive power, how it was fostered by the painter, his place in society, his excellence in workmanship, his judgement of the aesthetic of art, and other factors that reveal him as a master in his own field where, like a poet, as described by Anandavardhana, he was also a unique creator in his own right in the vast ocean of art, the universe transforming itself into whatever form he chose to portray it in.
