Prof: (Rtd.) Dr. Rai Anand Krishna needs no introduction to the world of Indian Art and Culture. On his father Rai Krishnadasa’s rich foundation, he structured his own creativity, experience of study, research and publication in this field. His creativity goes back to 1944 (a long span of six decades); his tradition continues even to the next generation. His accessible and kind personality makes him a standing humanist dear to a whole generation of Indian art students (who consider him his guru) as well as his scholar friends.
These students and friends, now an intimate part of the “Krishna family”, have in course of time carved for themselves a niche in their respective fields and are today among the outstanding scholars of Indian Art around the world.
This unique volume is a compilation of articles contributed by these colleagues, friends and students — all Indian art specialists from the length and breadth of the world. They have come together by contributing interesting finds of their fields to form this book-offering which constitutes a landmark in this Ananda-Vana of Indian Art, that is “The Forest of Bliss of Indian Art”.
Covering a time span from centuries prior to the beginning of Christian Era to the modern times, i.e. almost 2,000 years, this book embraces almost every facet of Indian Art, such as architecture, sculpture, textile, decorative arts, folk and modern art, sociology and culture.
Enriched with over 500 spectacular colour and black & white relevant illustrations, this scholarly book, unprecedented in style, will not only be a source of information both textually and visually for the academics, but will also be of great interest to every person fascinated by the general or specialized study of Indian Art.

Rajput Painting
To enter the world of Rajput Painting is to enter a dream world of fantasy and colour, of heroes and heroines gorgeously attired in brilliant hues, of epic poems and love songs, of courtly majesty and India's romantic past. This beautiful survey conveys the spirit of the great Hindu classical tradition that existed in all the arts, including painting and literature, from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. In this richly illustrated book, Roda Ahluwalia sets Rajput Painting in its historical and art-historical background, looking at local styles in the principalities of Rajasthan, Central India and the Punjab. She explores the themes -- mainly taken from folk tales and epic literature, erotic and religious poems, myths, legends and music - as well as the influence of Mughal painting and the importance of the cult of Krishna. The illustrations, taken mainly from the superb collections of the British Museum and the British Library, include many previously unpublished images, allowing a rare insight into this world of colour and romance.

Bundi: The City of Painted Walls
Bundi has had a long and chequered history of wall paintings. But curiously enough, the walls at Bundi, did notcome to the notice of any art historian so far. In this book an attempt has been made for the first time to give a detailed account of these murals and their place in the history of Indian painting. The Book first of its kind, bringing to light the existence of a school of wall paintings in this region, is well illustrated with line-drawings and numerous photographs.
