This survey, spanning 4000 years, traces the rich visual expression of one of the world's most ancient cultures through the varied arts of India. From the beginnings in the Indus valley, through the masterpieces of Buddhist and Hindu art, to the coming of Islam and the eclectic culture of the Mughal court, the country's artistic history is explored. The author leads the reader through the pantheon of the Hindu gods, the insights of Buddhist mysticism and the complex symbolism of miniature paintings. This revised edition brings the narrative up-to-date, exploring the contribution of 20th-century artists and incorporates a glossary and timeline.
