|Title Review |
Because of their specific style and peculiar themes, Malwa paintings (of 17th century A D), have been attracting both, oriental as well as occidental, art-historians. Present work is an indepth study of a rare collection of the miniature paintings of this series on Ramayana -- to bring out their literary background and aesthetic value, within the geo-political locale, which might have influenced the artists in creating these paintings. Also analysed critically, is the technique and style of the paintings, exhibiting great skills in compositional forms and expressions. The profusely illustrated book, provides enough research material to art-historians and modern painters, alike.
Dr Bhanu Agrawal, teaches at the Dept. of History of Arts, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India.
