Book Description
The studies presented here are in the nature of lectures by the renowned scholar Shahid Suhrawardy on the most important aspects of South Asian art, both ancient and modern. Although they were written over 70 years ago, his statements, when discussing art and education, remain as pertinent today as when they were first published. The topics are varied: Indian Art, Art and Education, Indo-Pakistan Painting, and Theatrical Art to name a few. In each essay Shahid Suhrawardy explores the historical influences found in the art form The Book also includes one of the earliest appreciations of the artist Jamini Roy`s work. These lectures enliven the cultural scene of India, and also recall the times when Culcutta was the hud of Indian cultural activity. Through these lectures, Suhrawardy established Art criticism on a sound footing in academia as well in the world of Art. The lectures are layered with information on many facets of the topic and are still interesting and instructive, pwith both the cultural historian and the educationist gaining insight from them.
