Buddhist Art in South-east Asia: The Indian Influence on the Art of Thailand, Reginald Le May
5 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.

16 Rome the Cosmopolis

Catharine Edwards and Greg Woolf (eds.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004, 0-521-80005-6 / 9780521800051, Reprint, Hard Cover, Brand New, No Jacket, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Rome stands today for an empire and for a city. The essays gathered in this volume explore some of the many ways in which the two were interwoven. Rome was fed, beautified and enriched by empire just as it was swollen, polluted, infected and occupied by it. Empire was paraded in the streets of Rome, and exhibited in the city’s buildings. Empire also made the city ineradicably foreign, polyglot, an alien capital, and a focus for un-Roman activities. The city was where the Roman cosmos was most concentrated, and so was most contested. Deploying a range of methodologies on materials ranging from Egyptian obelisks to human skeletal remains, via Christian art and Latin poetry, the contributors to this volume weave a series of pathways through the world-city, exploring the different kinds of centrality Rome had in the empire. The result is a startlingly original picture of both empire and city. Contents 1. Cosmopolis: Rome as world city Catharine Edwards and Greg Woolf; 2. The triumph of the absurd: Roman street theatre Mary Beard; 3. Incorporating the alien: the art of conquest Catharine Edwards; 4. Inventing Christian Rome: the role of early Christian art Jas?Elsner; 5. Slavery and the growth of Rome: the transformation of Italy in the first and second centuries BCE Wim Jongman; 6. Rivalling Rome: Carthage Richard Miles; 7. Migration and the metropolis Neville Morley; 8. Germs for Rome Walter Scheidel; 9. Embracing Egypt Caroline Vout; 10. The city of letters Greg Woolf.

17 Satish Chandra: Master of Atmospherics

Meenakshi Chandra

Roli Books, New Delhi, India, 2006, 81-7436-437-4 / 9788174364371, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 12 x 12 Inches 
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

19 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
