The spirit of Indian painting : close encounters with 101 great works, 1100-1900 by B. N Goswamy( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through close encounters with over a hundred carefully selected works, spanning nearly a thousand years, and ranging from Jain manuscripts and Pahari and Mughal miniatures to Company School paintings, B.N. Goswamy unlocks the many treasures that lie within Indian painting. In an illuminating introduction, and as Goswamy relates the stories behind each work and deciphers the visual vocabulary and language of the painters, he brings to life the cultural, social, and political milieu in which they were created. Lavishly illustrated, and combining erudition with great storytelling, The Spirit of Indian Painting reveals the beauty of this richly varied body of work in a new and brilliant light."--Publisher's description

Intimate worlds : Indian paintings from the Alvin O. Bellak collection by Darielle Mason( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the world’s finest private collections of Indian 'miniature' paintings, a promised bequest to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, is represented by some ninety works of art created in workshops across India over the course of four centuries. The paintings, all reproduced in full color and accompanied by a detailed scholarly examination, span the period from before the rise of Islamic Mughal rule in northern India during the 1500s to the heyday of the British Raj in the late nineteenth century. The 'intimate worlds' evoked by these images vividly illustrate Hindu, Muslim, and Jain religious stories; offer visions of life at court; and explore the pleasures and pains of love. Essays include a statement from the collector and an introductory history of courtly painting on the Indian subcontinent, as well as discussions of the history of the collecting of Indian art, hierarchies of taste, and the relationship between artists and patrons."--

Pahari masters : court painters of northern India by B. N Goswamy( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pahari painting has long been acknowledged as one of the great achievements of India in the realm of art. The Pahari painter, however, has always been relegated to an indeterminate, anonymous background, seen mostly as a craftsman following pre-determined patterns. This book recovers these artists. Presented here is neither merely a history of Pahari painting nor yet another study of the art of the northern hill states, but a search for the makers of the images." "The authors have chosen from the best work of fourteen Pahari masters, spanning three hundred years, from as many as twenty museums and private collections across the world. They have gathered as many facts as possible in an effort to bring the artists into sharper focus. From the vast number of paintings available, those included have been carefully selected in an effort to illuminate the range of each master's work and the processes of thought that may have been behind their art."--BOOK JACKET
