The illustrations, and there are in excess of 220 of them, are superbly photographed (not always easy with delicate ancient art) and well designed in the manner in which the pages are composed with written information. And as for the point of the exhibition, here is the work of 40 of India's finest painters - some names will be recognizable and many not: some of these painters are making their book debut at this time! The works are presented chronologically and each of the periods presented has its own quality of magic. The works have been borrowed from museums and collections from throughout the world. Included in the exhibition are works by Farrukh Beg, Mansur, Balchand, Pahari, and Chitarman II. But more important than the names so strange to too many people are the extraordinary masterworks included in this book. The color saturation is excellent and again, the biography of each painter provides an amazing amount of the history of India. For many this art school will be a new venture, and thanks to the unfailing taste of the Metropolitan Museum publications, this catalogue will be the definitive one on Indian art for many years.
