 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The present study illustrates the life of the people at the bottom of the society, frequently overlooked by the historians. The volume, containing no less than ninety illustrations, provides an authentic visual documentation of people's life and their work, and throw light on various aspects of the life of village men and women. It is a unique picturesque volume and brings in the role of the visual arts in historical writings. This book takes as a ground for discussion the representation of sculpture and painting. It includes the work of varied schools, but central to the study is a particular focus on the Imperial Mughal School, impressive for actual representation, vividness in detail and draughtsmanship. These provide more intimate view of material life than we can get anywhere else. Needless to say, it is only the visual records that provide us in detail the ordinary life and culture of the past in its purest form. Dr. Verma meticulously scrutinizes the visuals and carefully interprets various facets of ordinary life, and something of the struggle that Indian people have waged for bare subsistence for so many centuries. We see here stagnation in ordinary people's ways of life, which forms the core of present cultural study. The present volume will interest scholars and students of history and cultural studies of medieval India as also art-historians.
