Indian Art: Close-Up offers a closer look at the rich variety of styles, decorations, motifs and patterns – and the sheer craftsmanship – of art from India.

This beautiful book highlights in colour outstanding examples of design, workmanship and craft in dramatic sculptures of metal, stone and wood, as well as sumptuous paintings and textiles.

The book opens with an introduction that asks “What is Indian art?” This is followed by a series of chapters showing how the function and purposes of each object reflect its cultural context and determine the choice of image. By illustrating the complete artefact as well as exceptional features through the use of enlarged details – sometimes virtually invisible to the naked eye – intriguing insights and unusual comparisons can be made.

The selection of details evokes the hand and eye of the most accomplished Indian craftsmen over thousands of years. Ideal as a souvenir or introduction to any museum or gallery visit, this book will also provide endless creative inspiration.
