Midnight to the boom : painting in India after independence : from the Peabody Essex Museum's Herwitz Collection by Susan S Bean( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revolutionary art movement asserted itself in India between the declaration of independence at midnight on August 15, 1947, and the economic boom of the 1990s. This is the first in-depth study of the three generations of artists responsible for critical shifts in the development of India's modernist art.Their achievements and the country's unprecedented boom ushered India's modern and contemporary art into a new era of globalism, a soaring international market, and an explosion in the media and technologies of art. After independence, India's artists faced a particular artistic challenge : how to express the new nation's distinctive character while entering a global discourse focused on modernism's universal premises of experimentation and shared human values. In the absence of a dominant aesthetic, painters could turn where they wished and blend as they liked - from Abstract Expressionism to Tantric spiritualism ; from Rajasthani painting to changes in India's complex politics, religions, classes, and vernacular life. Abundantly illustrated with iconic works of the post-Independence era, Midnight to the Boom tells the story of the exciting developments that occurred in Indian art and culture during this pivotal period in the country's modern history."[Source : revers de la jaquette]

This is the first public display of more than 50 works from 30 of India's most famous artists, including Francis Newton Souza, Sakti Burman, Seema Kohli, and Maqbool Fida Husain. The Huffington Post called the collection, 'important and extraordinary'. With imagery from all walks of life, from the poorest citizens to dynamic deities, the works in this exhibition focus on India's people: individual characters gazing back at us, men and women inhabiting spaces, urban and rural, kneeling bodies meditating and praying. India's modern and contemporary art affirms that modern is global."--Publisher's website

From the land of the thunder dragon : textile arts of Bhutan( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bhutanese textiles are among the last of the great arts of Asia to gain recognition in the West, and this book presents the artform in its cultural and historical context. The book is an accompaniment to a special exhibition organized by the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts. The presentation covers all aspects of Bhutan's textile and weaving heritage, from the central role of women - more than 80% of Bhutanese women contribute to their households' income by weaving - to fibers, dyes and looms to the functioning of beautiful cloth as an item of trade and indicator of historical change and social identity. Textiles are Bhutan's premier art and are integrated into all aspects of life of this Himalayan kingdom. Their richness, originality and striking beauty are prominently displayed throughout this book, with examples from the Peabody Essex Museum, which holds the largest such collection of any North American museum, and public and private collections in the US, Canada, Britain and Bhutan
