edge wear, previous owner's inscription on title page; The splendour and diversity of India's ritual arts are, as Ajit Mookerjee explains, a door to a new dimension of existence. The great gods and goddess of India 'Siva and Krishna, Durga and Lakshmi, and the countless local deities and forces worshipped in the countryside, all have their icons and symbols, their ceremonies and rites.

In revealing exactly what they, and the painting, mean, this book opens a window on the world of the R... View more info

light edge wear; "a French painter whose brief career spurred the revival of interest in colour and movement, as seen in the tradition of Correggio and Rubens. He revitalized the waning Baroque style, shifting it to the less severe, more naturalistic, less formally classical, Rococo. Watteau is credited with inventing the genre of fête galantes, scenes of bucolic and idyllic charm, suffused with a theatrical air. Some of his best known subjects were drawn from the world of Italian comedy and ballet." - Wikipedia View more info
