Book Description

 Exploring the land, architecture, and people of India, David Gentleman's travels have informed this collection of watercolors and reminiscences. The result is not a romantic or nostalgic vision, but a study of a country in part patient, traditional, and unchanging, but one also renewed and transformed by its energy, inventiveness, and ingenuity.

From Library Journal
Gentleman, a British artist with a distinctive pen-and-wash style of watercolors (see, for instance, David Gentleman's Paris, St. Martin's, 1992) here covers the breadth of India from the Himalayas to the southern tip of the subcontinent to make a most appealing book. His bright and cheerful sketches, particularly those of Muhgal and Raj buildings, bring the country to life. He shows the India of the tourist, of course, but to his sketches he adds a substantial personal text describing his reactions, which swayed his moods "from fascination and elation to exhaustion, panic and despair." This is a lovely gift book choice, but it is suitable for public library collections as well.
