Description
Situated in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, the Mewar region has a long and distinguished tradition of producing quality paintings and sculptures. In more than 150 captioned, color reproductions, this 2007 exhibition catalogue from San Francisco's Asian Art Museum showcases 74 objects that show the depth and range of Mewar's artistic achievements. Here are 19th-century artist Chokha's stylish and visionary watercolor paintings; a highly embellished yet accurate map of the sacred complex at Nathadwara; the contemporary bas-relief Goddess seated on a two-headed mount; and an 18th-century genealogical scroll of the region's rulers, featuring fabulously detailed landscapes teeming with people. The book features five essays introducing this somewhat underappreciated artistic legacy, as well as discussing some of Mewar's most important artists.
