In the 17th and 18th centuries, the artists of the Rajput court exercised a tremendous influence over Indian art, creating paintings that were elegant, sensual, and often superbly detailed. Culled from the Kronos Collection, this splendidly illustrated overview features over 90 important paintings of the predominantly Hindu Rajput tradition, vivid depictions of scenes from epics, mystical legends, and courtly life. Along with an informative entry for every work and an essay by Steven Kossak on the gratifications of collecting this art, the book contains Terence McInerney text, an outline of the history of Indian painting, with a special emphasis on the Rajput courts.
