My Brush with Art: An Anthology of contemporary Indian Art
My Brush with Art: An Anthology of contemporary Indian Art
Description
From the Jacket:

Contemporary Indian Art, is given or take a decade, three quarters of a century old. This book covers artists who worked, grew to maturity and established themselves in the post-independence years. Lakshmi Lal brings to their work the insights of a seasoned viewer whose joy in experiencing art is both infectious and illuminating.

About the Author:

Lakshmi Lal started viewing contemporary Indian art in the 50s when she moved from Chennai to live and work in Mumbai. It grew into a deep interest, almost as deep as her interest in ancient Indian myth, legend, philosophy and art. She is the author of The Warlis - Tribal Legends, The Ramayana, Ganesha - Beyond the Form, Shiva - Eye of the Storm, Myth and Me - The Indian Story.

She has an M.A. in English from the Madras University and has been a life-long student of Sanskrit Language and Literature, focusing for the past two decades on Vedanta and related texts. She now resides in Bangalore.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
