My Brush with Art: An Anthology of contemporary Indian Art
My Brush with Art: An Anthology of contemporary Indian Art
Description
From the Jacket:

Contemporary Indian Art, is given or take a decade, three quarters of a century old. This book covers artists who worked, grew to maturity and established themselves in the post-independence years. Lakshmi Lal brings to their work the insights of a seasoned viewer whose joy in experiencing art is both infectious and illuminating.

About the Author:

Lakshmi Lal started viewing contemporary Indian art in the 50s when she moved from Chennai to live and work in Mumbai. It grew into a deep interest, almost as deep as her interest in ancient Indian myth, legend, philosophy and art. She is the author of The Warlis - Tribal Legends, The Ramayana, Ganesha - Beyond the Form, Shiva - Eye of the Storm, Myth and Me - The Indian Story.

She has an M.A. in English from the Madras University and has been a life-long student of Sanskrit Language and Literature, focusing for the past two decades on Vedanta and related texts. She now resides in Bangalore.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
I got my order today. It was well packed and looks lovely.
