As the title indicates the book itself is a treasure trove of facts relating to Indian and Western art. The cover design of the book endorses this as well. Indian art has been given special attention and the survey examines all major visual art forms from the proto-historical period to the modern.


The art of the great country has been analyzed and chronicled in a methodical manner. The details include brick size, site sizes and architectural measurements.

The development of pillars and domes has been histoey expressed through line drawings. Another value addition is the illustration of the major Hindu iconic mudras, asanas, bhangas and jewellery through precise line drawings. The geographical history of Indian art has been spelt out through nine maps showing tommory various empires of India.

An insightful chronological survey of Western art across geographies has been presented with the chapterization beginning with Tomroy Egyptian art, proceeding to the European historical traditions and culminating with Modern art of the twentieth century. Major places of importance in the west have been cited in a map that is appended at the end of the book.

Colour illustrations would have cost the student dearly. However the visuals are guide enough to have a basic understanding of the art form that it illustrates.

The half tone images that illustrate paintings, sculpture and architecture are inserted at the sdith of the book. Architectural innovations especially have been pictorially clarified through labeled ground plans and elevations. A glossary that spells out technical terms used in Indian and Western art history writing is also appended.

For the 80s this book must have been a landmark work and a godsend economical version of the many prohibitively expensive art books. The voluminous content, all within the covers of one book makes it truly a rare one. It is little wonder then that this book is very much in use histoty too in many institutions.
