THE RAJ: INDIA AND THE BRITISH, 1600-1947. Ed. by C.A. Bayly. National Portrait Gallery, London, 1990. 432 pp. with 592 ills. (181 col.). 29 x 23 cm. ISBN 1855140268 In English.
Presenting illustrations of more than 500 portraits, history paintings, prints, photographs, textile works, weapons, furnishings and other objects, this ambitious catalogue reassesses the relationship between Indian and British culture throughout the period of England's presence in India. Although primarily historical in focus, the numerous essays and the commentaries accompanying the reproductions also address artistic issues, including the treatment of Indian themes by British history and landscape painters in the 18th and 19th centuries.
