Imagine if half the paintings of the Italian Renaissance had never been photographed until now. How great a revelation would a book presenting those works be? That is the perfect analog for the achievement that is Indian Painting: The Great Mural Tradition, the first complete survey of classical Indian wall painting ever published. Author Mira Seth, the world's leading scholar on the subject, has personally visited all of the major sites featured in this book, from the temples of South India, the Deccan, where the world-famous Ajanta and Ellora caves are located, to Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir in the north. This book gives an in-depth analysis of the interconnections not only between different schools of painting but also the sister arts of sculpture and architecture. By putting each work in this lavishly illustrated volume in its political and geographical context, Seth creates the groundbreaking panoramic look at Indian wall painting the art world has long needed.
