Published by the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery on the occasion of the exhibition Garden and Cosmos: The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur, October 11, 2008 - January 4, 2009. Organized by the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the exhibition travels to the Seattle Art Museum, January 29 - April 26, 2009, British Museum May 28 - August 23, 2009, and National Museum of India, opening November 2009. Art historians Debra Diamond and Catherine Glynn present new scholarship that bears broadly on north Indian court art by examining how Marwar artists created images for subjects new to court painting and how they represented definitive spaces by closely observing architecture or citing images from maps and town plans. The metaphysics and later political history of the Nath Sampraday (the sectarian order that originated hatha yoga in the twelfth-thirteenth century) that inspired the dramatic stylistic break in nineteenth-century Jodhpur painting are a second focus of the book. An additional essay is devoted to the examination of the Jodhpur atelier and its production of uniquely large manuscripts. --- from the back jacket blurb
