1 Molly Emma Aitken (Ed.)
A Magic World: New Visions of Indian Painting
The Marg Foundation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789383243150; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the 100 years since Ananda Coomaraswamy wrote his seminal Rajput Painting, the field of Indian painting studies has gone from a period of explosive discovery to a deepening of knowledge about individual artists and workshops. More recently, scholars have also begun to probe artists’ and patrons’ creative decisions and have entered into extensive conversation with South Asian cultural studies in general. They reconsider Coomaraswamy’s distinction between “Rajput”and Mughal painting and focus more on the connections between these two worlds, analyzing the complex meanings these paintings might have held for their artists, patrons and viewers. This celebratory volume probes the cultural preoccupations of 16th- to early 20th-century Rajput, Mughal and Deccan India, and provides delightful new insights into the magic world of Indian painting. Molly Emma Aitken is Associate Professor in the Art Department at the City College of New York and the Art History Department at the CUNY Graduate Center. She has published extensively on Mughal and Rajput painting. Printed Pages: 129 with numerous colour illustrations. 111499

The Intelligence of Tradition in Rajput Court Painting
Yale University Press; London; 0300142293 / 9780300142297; Hardcover; New; New; 
The genre of Rajput painting flourished between the 16th and 19th centuries in the kingdoms that ruled what is now the Indian state of Rajasthan (place of rajas). Rajput paintings depicted the nobility and court spectacle as well as scenes from Krishna’s life, the Hindu epics, and court poetry. Many Rajput kingdoms developed distinct styles, though they shared common conventions. This important book surveys the overall tradition of Indian Rajput painting, while developing new methods to ask unprecedented questions about meaning.Through a series of in-depth studies, Aitken shows how traditional formal devices served as vital components of narrative meaning, expressions of social unity, and rich sources of intellectual play. Supported by beautiful full-color illustrations of rare and often inaccessible paintings, Aitken’s study spans five centuries, providing a comprehensive and innovative look at the Rajasthan’s court painting traditions and their continued relevance to contemporary art. Printed Pages: 341 with 173 b/w & 65 colour illustrations. 107410
