Kalamkari Temple Hangings
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385360046; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has the world’s most important collection of 19th-century temple hangings from South India. Commissioned by Hindu temples and monasteries (maths), and by individuals for religious use, the hangings were produced in the kalamkari style of hand drawing, mordant-dyeing and painting. Striking in artistry, and imposing in size, these temple hangings represent a complex technique that reached its highest expression in southern India.The majority of these pieces are from coastal Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu, with one extraordinary Ramayana hanging from Sri Lanka. All of them date from the 19th century except for one astonishing 20th-century hanging from Srikalahasti, depicting the life of Christ in the traditional Hindu kalamkari style. A first of its kind, this volume presents a fully illustrated compilation of nineteen pieces from the V&A collection, accompanied by translations of their inscriptions, and a summary of the story depicted therein. The ‘frame-by-frame’ analyses of these narratives yield a fascinating range of stories, from versions of the Ramayana to local epics. Bringing this previously unpublished collection together, the book provides us with a new look at the remarkable variety of regional artistic traditions, and allows us to celebrate the master craftsmen whose names are now known to us. Printed Pages: 192 with 120 colour illustrations. 111985

Reverse Glass Painting In India
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285349; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Reverse Glass Painting is a fascinating yet comparatively unknown facet of Indian art that flourished in the mid-19th century. Created by Chinese and Indian artists, these 'exotic' paintings in luminous colours were much favoured by royal patrons, and also by prosperous landowners and city merchants in colonial India. The themes ranged from portraits of rulers, their families, nobles, dancers and courtesans, to landscapes and a wide variety of religious subjects drawn from the Puranas and the Epics. Many of the portraits depict western style settings and offer a charming insight into the tastes and lifestyle of the western-educated urban elite in mid-19th and early 20th century India. Over a 100 colour images highlight the rare gems of reverse glass painting from numerous private collections in India. Printed Pages: 252. 112629
