Books By Author Partha Mitter

Face of the Buddha by Partha Mitter Face of the Buddha, Hardback (June 2016)

The English poet, philosopher, and literary critic William Empson considered 'The Face of the Buddha' to be one of his finest works and was heartbroken when he lost the only copy in the wake of World War Two. Its recent rediscovery means the book can now be offered for the very first time exactly as he intended.

Sohan Qadri by Partha Mitter Sohan Qadri, Hardback (December 2011)

Born in 1932 in Punjab, India, Qadri began his quest for his true self through Tantric yoga and spent long periods of time silently meditating in remote temples in the Himalayas and Tibet. This is the monograph of Sohan Qadri, a modern Tantric painter.

Triumph of Modernism by Partha Mitter Triumph of Modernism, Paperback (October 2007)

Explores the contested history of art and nationalism in the tumultuous last decades of British rule in India. With a fascinating array of art works, this book throws much light on a previously neglected strand of modern art and introduces the work of artists who are little known in Europe or America.
