The Vision of Kings: Art and Experience in India

This catalog was written to accompany a show offering 2000 years of Indian art, gathered from private and public collections, which recently went on tour in Australia. All media are represented, and each piece has a clear descriptive passage pinpointing its origin. Masterpieces from the traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism and paintings from the Mughal courts are included. Most of the works were patronized by Indian royalty, and thus the emphasis is less on daily life and more on the position of kings relative to the spiritual world. See Cover
