EPIC TALES FROM ANCIENT INDIA: PAINTINGS FROM THE SAN DIEGO MUSEUM OF ART. Marika Sardar. Princeton University Art Museum, 2016. Organized and published by San Diego Museum of Art. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 156 pp. with 127 col. ills. 25 x 25 cm. ISBN 9780300223729 In English.
Publisher's description: Exploring the topic of narrativity in Indian art, this beautiful and deeply researched book considers illustrations to the Bhagavata Purana, the Ramayana, the Ragamala, and a range of texts in the Persian language, notably the Shahnama. Featuring stunning reproductions of paintings made between the 16th and 19th centuries from the Edwin Binney 3rd Collection at The San Diego Museum of Art, the publication includes thorough and fascinating explanations of the narrative of each text, including how that narrative is visually conveyed. Essays examine why these particular stories are so enduring, why patrons may have chosen to have a copy of a particular text made for their own collections, and how artists responded to the challenge of creating new versions of venerable classics.
