 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Prints relating to any country are an historical revelation. Those portraying aspects of India, such as the magnificence of its architecture, the range of landscape, the exotic flora and fauna and the varied costumes and customs of its people, have a special fascination for people today. The development of the East India Company, particularly during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, encouraged professional British Artists to work in the main cities, especially in Calcutta and Madras. At the same time, company servants in the civil and military ranks frequently executed drawing as part of their official duties or, as amateur artist, would spend their leisure hours sketching subjects that caught their attention. The vogue for recording India grew rapidly. There was, equally, a wide circle of people both in India and in England who were collecting pictures of the subcontinent. With this increasing interest and demand, many of the more popular subjects were engraved or lithographed and published as sets or as individual prints. The articles in this volume have been chosen in order to convey something of the tremendous pictorial richness to be found in the prints relating to India.
