The nine essays in this book are among author's most stimulating. They discuss such matters as true function of aesthetics in art, the importance of symbolism, and the importance of intellectual & philosophical background to the artist, they analyse the role of traditional culture in enriching art, they demonstrate the abstract art and primitive art, despite superficial resemblances, are completely divergent and they deal with the common philosophy which pervades all great art, the nature of medieval art, folklore and modern art, the beauty inherent in mathematics, and the union of traditional symbolism and individual portraiture in premodern cultures. The author is a great Orientalist and has covered the philosophic and religious experience of the entire premodern world, East and West, and for him primitive, medieval European, and classical Indian experiences of truth and art were only different dialects in a common language. Printed Pages: 146.
