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.
