Historical Development of Contemporary Indian Art was visualised as part of the special publications programme on the completion of Golden Jubilee of the Lalit Kala Akademi. It was planned to cover the period from late nineteenth century when Raja Ravi Varma had flourished until the Independence of India in 1947. The editors proposed the tripartite structure and placement of various regions in a time-line sequence within each section of the book. The first section covers the naturalistic phase in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Bengal, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. The second section is devoted to the intellectual and creative churning that took place at the beginning of the twentieth century when traditional art is rediscovered and re-absorbed in fresh creative ventures which is widely accepted as 'Revivalism'. These regional involvements and initiatives resulted in conflicts between tradition and European modes, which served as the ground or base for the emergence of the first phase of modernity- that saga is covered in the third section.
