Buddhist Art in South-east Asia: The Indian Influence on the Art of Thailand, Reginald Le May
8 Buddhist Art in South-east Asia: The Indian Influence on the Art of Thailand

Reginald Le May

Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2004, 81-7305-260-3 / 9788173052606, Reprint, Hard Cover, New, New, 22 Cms x 28 Cms 
The aim of this volume is to present a connected history of different forms of Buddhist art which flourished in South-East Asia, especially Thailand, from the early years of Christian era up to the end of the sixteenth century. The book thus furnishes for the first time, a connected and comprehensive account of the art of Thailand (or Siam, as previously known) and also intimately connected arts of India, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia and other neighbouring countries. In spite of the obscure history of Thailand and the dependence of its art on the other countries for inspiration, Dr. Le May has succeeded in putting together a reasoned and convincing account of over a period of 1500 years. As the origin of all the forms of Buddhist art found in South-East Asia are to be sought in India, it is essential to obtain a thorough knowledge of Indian Buddhist art as groundwork, which always had the remarkable capacity to adapt itself to the needs of every country, race and religion. Also, as the art of each and every one of these countries in South-East Asia is complimentary to the rest and a knowledge of each, such as this book provides, is indispensable to our understanding of the whole. The book also contains over 200 photographs selected to illustrate the different phases through which various art forms in Thailand have passed and also examples from India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Cambodia and Indonesia for comparison. It, thus not only interprets thoughts, theories, meanings and views on the origin, history, diffusion, structure and inter-relation, but also provides a guiding thread among the various styles and periods while giving an adequate and correct idea of the various schools and works of Buddhist art.

Contemporary Indian Artists from Bengal, Modhurima Sinha
10 Contemporary Indian Artists from Bengal

Modhurima Sinha

Mapin Publishing, Ahmedabad, India, 2003, 1-890206-64-4 / 9781890206642, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 28 Cms x 28 Cms 
Modern Indian painting came into its own when artists began to fuse traditional approaches with the bold experimentation of the west. Indian subjects are treated in startlingly different ways as these eleven artists from Bengal evoke through symbol, myth, colours and lines, the rich and complex aspects of this amazing land. Green landscapes threaded by gleaming rivers, mysterious and lovely Radhas rising from beds of purple lotuses, Durgas astride lions, business men with rolled umbrellas, women working and dreaming, leaves and water, Gods and beasts, are caught in colours and shapes rich enough to make one see the world in a fresh, glinting light. The eldest of the painters represented in this volume was born in 1918, the youngest in 1965; the time span is the twentieth century, and the style modern, but these Christs and Noahs and Krishnas speak of realities as old as the hills, as permanent as the plains. The paintings simply stun one into silence. This volume reaches out to a public that may never see these paintings, may never have been to Bengal, never thought of the intricate design that lies under the plethora of phenomena. We hear them speak; we learn about their lives by the river, or in the city, or the small town; we see how passion drives them to paint, and we catch something of that flame.

13 From the Sacred Realm: Treasures of Tibetan Art from the Newark Museum

Valrae Reynolds with Contributions By Janet Gyatso, Amy Heller, and Dan Martin

Prestel, Munich, Germany, 2000, 3-7913-2148-X / 9783791321486, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 25 Cms x 31 Cms 
Ranging from the 11th to the 20th century, ritual silk brocade garments, painted leather pieces, ceremonial silver objects, intricately worked ornaments, prayer wheels, and Buddhist paintings and sculpture, are all lavishly illustrated in From the Sacred Realm. The lucidly written texts provide an in-depth insight into the remarkable and fascinating culture of Tibet. The outstanding Tibetan collection held by The Newark Museum stems from a treasure trove of objects originally brought together by the missionary Dr. Shelton during his stay in Eastern Tibet from 1904 to 1920. Over the course of the twentieth century this unique collection has grown considerably, showing a breadth of artworks of the highest quality, representing all aspects of Tibetan culture. From the Sacred Realm: Treasures of Tibetan Art analyzes these fascinating, multifaceted works of art, and provides an overview of the museum’s holdings. Scenes of everyday life, the role of the nobility, and the official Buddhist establishment are covered in the essays and illustrated by numerous color plates. Black-and-white photographs taken prior to the Chinese occupation document a world culture, much of which has now been lost forever. Printed Pages: 246 with 146 color illustrations. 001132

Satish Chandra was one of the most renowned landscape painters in India. Such was his confidence in his art, and his love for Nature, that he devoted his whole life to painting landscapes. In the end, he acquired a reputation second to none on the Indian art scene. He was the true artist of India's northern plains, and as special, gentle and dignified a person as his art was uplifting. This book is a loving tribute to Satish by his wife, Meenakshi. She was his muse, he was her mentor, and the two have merged in an extraordinary way in this book, bringing alive the artist and his art. Printed Pages: 276. 015816

31 The Buddhist Art of Kausambi

Aruna Tripathi

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2003, 81-246-0226-3 / 9788124602263, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
One of the major centres of Buddhist art in ancient times, Kausambi provides evidence of an uninterrupted art tradition spanning centuries. Pointing to the scant attention Kausambi has received from scholars in the past, this work attempts to highlight its art treasures through a study of its stone sculptures. Based on scrutiny of stone sculptures found at various sites in Kausambi and its vicinity and housed in different museums, it presents perhaps the first extensive documentation of the Buddhist art of the region from the Mauryan to post-Gupta period. It examines in detail over 300 stone sculptures, paying special attention to their iconographic features, types of stone, techniques of carving, grinding and polishing and their aesthetic appeal. All this comes with a background throwing light on the history of Kausambi and its association with Buddhism, the early archaeological explorations in the region, and the individuality and uniqueness of Kausambi art as compared to Mathura and Sarnath schools. The book presents over 225 black-and-white and over 50 coloured photographs of Buddhist sculptures which are neatly classified and systematically analysed. It would prove invaluable to scholars and students of Buddhist art. Printed Pages: 364 with 2 maps, 322 b/w photos and 54 coloured illustrations. 010688
