 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Lahore has long been recognized as one of the leading centers for cultural pursuits in the subcontinent. Reflecting the artistic plurality of the city today, this book contains ten essays by scholars on the paintings, murals, and calligraphy of Lahore from c. 1610 to the present.

A historical framework is provided in the Introduction and in the discussion of the Islamic epigraphy of the city. Hitherto unseen details of frescoes in the Lahore Fort, traditional book business and the art of the illustrated book during the Sikh period, and the mural programme in Maharaja Ranjit Singh's memorial are described. Miniature paintings on ivory in the Lahore Museum, British-period drawings by Bhai Ram Singh, and the contemporary synergies at work in art practices in Lahore are amply demonstrated in the final quartet of articles - modern "miniatures", the modernist Shemza, the revival of calligraphy in art, and political cartooning.
