of Pahari painting. His awards and honours include

the Padma Bhushan, conferred in 2008.


The Spirit of Indian Painting

Close Encounters with 101 Great Works 1100-1900

Penguin, 2014


In this magnificent, lavishly illustrated book, Professor Goswamy

opens readers' eyes to the wonders of Indian painting, and shows

them new ways of seeing art. An illuminating introductory essay,

'A Layered World', explains the themes and emotions that inspired

Indian painters, the values and influences that shaped their work, and

the unique ways in which they depicted Time and Space. It describes,

too, the different regional styles, the relationship between patrons and

 painters, the tools and techniques the painters used and the milieu

in which they created their works.


The second part of this book,'Close Encounters with 101 Great Works',

presents paintings carefully selected by Prof. Goswamy, spanning

nearly a thousand years and ranging from Jain manuscripts and

Rajasthani, Mughal, Pahari and Deccani miniatures, to Company School

paintings. His description and analysis of these works unlock the

treasures that lie within them and show us how to 'read' each painting,

as he points out its finest features, explains its visual vocabulary

and symbolism, and recounts the story, legend or event that inspired it.


Combining deep scholarship with great storytelling, this is a book of

enduring value that will both educate and delight the reader.


It is destined to become a classic.
