In the Present work of Coomaraswamy attempts to explain the theory behind medieval European and Asian art, especially art in India. He further supplements the Indian theorywith that of the Chinese. The first principle of his theories is that art does not exist for its own sake; it exists as means to some religious conditions or experience. The comparison with medieval European art in this respect is extremely illuminating. He further shows that both differ radically from the post-Renaissance European Art.Coomaraswamy discusses the theory of art in Asia in the first chapter and contends that the Indian artist did not seek an illusion of Nature, rather he tried to create a truthful suggestion of the character of the subject. He examines, in the second chapter, the medieval European aesthetics in terms of the fourteenth century German mystic, Meister Eckhart. Following chapters investigate through Indian texts the psychology of the Indian view of art. And finally, the origin and use of images in India are discussed in the last chapter.Printed Pages:
