Dictionary of Indian Art and Artists

Including Technical Art Terms

From Ajanta to Yoni to Halatol, with its over 2000 entries on painting, drawing, prints and sculpture, including more than 300 colour illustrations, Dictionary of Indian Art presents a comprehensive picture of the world of art in India. The first book to focus exclusively on the evolution and context of Indian art, it provides a roadmap for the artist, student, art professional and art lover to discover or advance knowledge on artists, movements, monuments and institutions that represent the creative force of Indian art. Utilising extensive cross-referencing, links are made between artists, concepts, techniques and period. Over 500 entries trace the emergence over the last century of Indian contemporary art, in which references to Western art terminology are discussed in the Indian context. An extensive bibliography provides suggestions for further reading.
