1 Vibhuti Sachdev and Giles Tillotson
Building Jaipur: The Making of an Indian City
Oxford University Press; London, UK; 2002; 0195663535 / 9780195663532; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Jaipur in Rajasthan is famous for its palaces and museums, its craft traditions and its characteristic pink shops and houses. A planned city within walls, it was built in pre-modern times according to a distinctive Indian body of theory known as vastu vidya. Later, as Indian architecture developed in response to British and subsequent post-colonial policies, this system became increasingly marginalized and fragmented, decreasingly practised and understood. A chasm divides today's architecture from the principles that guided the city's first builders. Building Jaipur is an essay in intellectual archaeology, explaining historic buildings according to the rationale of their architects, and exploring the relationship between theory and architectural practice from the city's foundation in the 1720s to the present day. Challenging Post-Modernist interpretations of the past, the authors set out the terms of a fresh engagement with vastu vidya to enrich both current design philosophy and the architecture of contemporary India. With 300 illustrations, of which 25 are in full colour, this architectural biography of a fascinating city presents a history and a new understanding of the use and purpose of Indian architectural theory over the last 300 years. Printed Pages: 256 with 95 halftones and 25 colour plates. 020482

2 Vibhuti Sachdev & Giles Tillotson (Authors)
Jaipur City Palace
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365699 / 9788174365699; Softcover; New; 
The City Palace of Jaipur was established in 1727 by one of the most distinguished figures in Indian history, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who is remembered today as a statesman and astronomer. From the date of its foundation until 1949, his palace served as the main residence of Sawai Jai Singh's successors and as the centre of the Jaipur court administration. Today the palace includes a privately owned museum of courtly arts. Historically one of India's most important royal complexes, the Jaipur City Palace was always much more than the residence of a maharaja. It was also a site of religious ritual, a place of entertainment, a centre of politics and court ceremony, and a source of patronage for music, literature, dance and painting. This book describes and illustrates the palace buildings and the many activities that they accomodated. Printed Pages: 144. 108618

4 Giles Tillotson & Mrinalini Venkateswaran (Eds)
Painting and Photography: At The Jaipur Court
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285240; Hardcover; New; New; 
From its very inception in 1727, Jaipur has drawn upon the arts to carve a niche for itself. This book tells the story of the visual arts in Jaipur over a period of more than two centuries, highlighting the dual roles of its rulers as patrons who commissioned works from their own court artists, and as collectors who acquired works from elsewhere. In the special case of Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II, it also encompasses the creation of art, as he was an accomplished amateur photographer.The story begins with paintings from the 18th century, from the period of the founder Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, up to that of Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, under whose reign painting in particular flourished. It then captures the excitement of the late 19th century when the camera competed with but also complemented the artistís brush under Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II. The story concludes with images from the eventful years leading to Indian Independence and its aftermath overseen by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II and Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, bringing us up to the mid-20th century.This volume is the fourth in a new series of publications illustrating the collections of the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, City Palace, Jaipur. It accompanies a new gallery dedicated to painting and photography that opened in 2015, showcasing a selection of two hundred paintings and photographs. Specially commissioned chapters on painting and photography in Jaipur expand on the scope of the exhibition and draw together the latest research on the collection. Other books in the series are: Festivals at the Jaipur Court, by Vibhuti Sachdev; Arms & Armour at the Jaipur Court, by Robert Elgood; and Textiles & Garments at the Jaipur Court, by Rahul Jain. Printed Pages: 276 with numerous colour illustrations. 107542
