Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), who was not only a pioneer historian of Indian art, a master interpreter, one of the most versatile of this century whose scholarship and knowledge knew no bounds, but a universal man at the same time, the one who urged the Indians to be conscious of their glorius heritage.
