He edited the volume Flora and Fauna in Mughal Art, Marg Publications, Mumbai, 1999.

Professor Verma is a practicing artist as well. He is the recipient of two prestigious awards by the Indian Academy of Fine Arts, Amritsar (1981) and the Academy of Fine Arts, Calcutta (1982).

In 1986-7, he worked at the Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. as a Fulbright Fellow.

Foreword

Here is yet another volume of our Art and Culture; actually the third one in our proposed series.

This volume carries the sub – title ‘Painting and Perspective’. Art, whether paintings or sculpture, is not value – free. We may go to the extent of saying that no human endeavour in any sphere of life can escape the value syndrome. The moment an individual, a group or a community decides to create or do something, values, aspirations and objectives start playing their role nay, their very decision is determined by an assortment of motivations and ideals. Utilitarian requirements and pragmatic considerations, too, cannot cold shoulder the prevailing or fresh mores and values of a cultural environment.

It is not rational to look upon paintings as a purely aesthetic exercise since aesthetics itself is a complex product of refined thought and reflection rooted in the psyche of social groups during the course of their various material activities.

Colour is the keystone of a painting, and do we need reminding ourselves that colour is obtained from material objects? But colour combination in a painting for contrast or other purposes, is the result of the artist’s individual perceptions and insight. Indeed, a study of painting would be bereft of any meaning it they are not situated in their contemporary cultural construct.

Keeping in view the above observations, the majority of the articles in the present volume in some way elaborate our understanding what art constitutes of. One can glean from paintings facets of science and technology, daily life of the people, children’s games, symbols and signs of cultural significance, attitude towards nudity, etc. Sculpture claims only one contribution, depicting some episodes of the Ramayana.

Of especial mention is a piece of literary criticism concerning William Blake, the unique English poet, who used to illustrate his mystic verses in an exclusive manner. The reader will find that only three articles in the volume are without pictures: two belong to the category of women’s studies, and one is on an aspect of marine transport technology. We have avoided diacritical marks with some exceptions.

We take this opportunity to thank the contributors who warmly responded, when requested, to participate in our earnest undertaking.

Once again, we are sincerely grateful to our experienced and distinguished publisher Mr. Shakti Mali (Abhivan Publications, New Delhi) for bringing out this volume against heavy odds.
