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

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 232 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."--

Drawn from courtly India : the Conley Harris and Howard Truelove Collection by Ainsley M Cameron( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents the first in-depth survey of the Conley Harris and Howard Truelove Collection of Indian drawings, which was recently acquired by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This exceptional collection, which has never previously been published, consists of 65 works on paper created between the 16th and 19th centuries. The Harris-Truelove Collection is uniquely and tightly focused on works from the royal courts of North India, and the majority of these drawings served as preparatory material for the opaque watercolor illustrations that have been widely collected and studied. This catalogue celebrates the assured line of the Indian draftsman and recognizes these drawings as accomplished works of art in their own right. The text details the process and technique involved in their production, and explores what can be revealed by the artist's hand. This in-depth look at drawings also contextualizes the role of art production in court culture, and reveals the intricacies of artistic workshop practice.0Exhibition: Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA (28.11.-27.3.2016)
Phulkari : the embroidered textiles of Punjab from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz collection( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exquisite and labor-intensive, phulkari ("floral-work" or "flower-craft") embroideries were originally produced by women in towns and villages across the greater Punjab, a region that today straddles Pakistan and India, from at least the early 19th century into the first decades of the 20th. Phulkaris were made from brightly colored silk thread on rough, earth-toned fabric. When done for domestic use, they functioned primarily as women's wraps at weddings or other important events. Especially following the Punjab's devastating partition in 1947, phulkaris were also produced as commercial exports. Focusing on a group of nineteen stunning works from the collection of Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz, Phulkari surveys the genre's fascinating history. This is the first publication outside South Asia specifically on this art form. It also offers significant new information on the craft and its importance to personal, familial, and regional identity in the past and the present.
