The peaceful liberators : Jain art from India by Pratapaditya Pal( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jainism (together with Hinduism and Buddhism) is one of the three major world religions to have emerged in India. It has been continously practised since at least the 6th century BC and currently has a following of some six million people. Over the course of two millennia the Jains have produced a diversive and vital range of art which has hitherto been little known in the West. Illustrated with examples from all ages, it provides a comprehensive introduction to the art of the Jains and an insight into the practices, principles and beliefs of the religion. In a detailed introduction Pratapaditya Pal, presents a history of Jainism and describes the different forms of art produced in each period: decorated temples and shrines; images of wood, stone and bronze; illuminated manuscripts; cloth paintings; architectural reliefs and votive tablets - all bearing their own religious significance. The volume also includes an examination of Jain ritual and philosophical thought, an account of the Jain pilgrimages, and illuminating overviews of Jain cosmological painting and manuscript illustration. It is published to accompany a travelling exhibition of Jain art which has been shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum in November 1995

The history of Tibetan thanka painting is well represented, and 65 new works have been added to the current edition. Recommended for large art collections and libraries emphasizing Asian studies
