 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The world renowned N.C. Mehta Collection of Indian miniature paintings represent most of the schools and wide range of themes from 16th to 19th century. It is housed in Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum in Ahmedabad since 1993. The present publication is the second volume in the series of publications made possible by the Financial Assitance of Ministry of Culture. In Volume I, entitled, Gujarati School and Jaina Manuscript Paintings the author has located the Western Indian style of Jaina painting within Gujarat with epicenter at Patan. Together with N.C. Mehta's collection of Jaina manuscript paintings, were grouped the early Gita Govinda folios and the Chaurapanchasika paintings, which collectively represent the Gujarat School. The Volume II takes up the story further to cover the bulk of remaining schools of paintings beginning with Rajasthani and followed by Central Indian (Malwa, Orccha, Datia) and Mughal schools, which naturally formed self-contained chapters. Mehta had an eye for portraits which offered the opportunity to write on Indian artists competence in the genre of portraiture, and delve into the intricacies of dynastic histories. Paintings based on srngara literature in Sanskrit and Braj bhasa languages are elaborately interpreted. Guest authors collaborated in covering Ragamala theme, besides Persian illustrated folios and Nepalese Vajrayana paintings. The rich and varied collection of Pahari paintings was taken up in the initial volume by Karl Khandalavala (c.1984). However, a number of fascinating unpublished drawings and curious set of small paintings are included here. Thus this volume offers a complete range of N.C. Mehta collection and at the same time enables to build a comprehensive character of the multifaceted maturity of art of painting in India over four centuries. The author has continued the methodology of drawing attention to the artists personality by exploring artists individuality when necessary. Both the volumes have also been exercises based on the concept of Catalogue Raisonne. The present volume has been graced by the foreword of the eminent art historian Rai Anand Krishna, who has written on the friendship between his illustrious art-historian father, Rai Krishna Das and N.C. Mehta.
