 DESCRIPTION
spacer
As repositories of artefacts from different cultures, museums in every country have served not only as centres of education, enhancing our understanding of the world around us, but as custodians of the common artistic heritage of human kind. In the year 1994, the Baroda Museum and picture gallery celebrated its centenary. For a hundred years, its rich and varied collections have delighted and enlightened all those who have walked through its portals. The museum has functioned as an institution providing non-formal education in scientific and cultural areas through its collections and its multi-faceted activities. It possesses a vast array of exhibits on natural history, and is a veritable treasure-house of artefacts and art objects assembled from different regions of India, as also from distant lands. The art exhibits have provided a window to cultures as disparate as those of Egypt and Japan or as far-flung as Mongolia and the Netherlands, and as inaccessible as Tibet. This volume presents the masterpieces from the collection of this great institution. The historical importance and style of each object has been discussed in detail and it has been assigned a place within its cultural context. The Royal Bequest constitutes the first in a series of annotated catalogues on the remarkable collections in the museums of India. Through these volumes, this series endeavours to stimulate the interest of the scholar, the connoisseur, and the student in the glories of out world heritage, especially that of India, as manifested in art.
