Combining a clear overview with fascinating detail, Mitter succeeds in bringing to life the true diversity of Indian culture. The influence of Islam on the Mughal court, which produced the world-famous Taj Mahal and exquisite miniature paintings, is closely examined.
More recently, he discusses the nationalist and global concerns of contemporary art, including the rise of female artists, the stunning architecture of Charles Correa, and the vibrant art scene.

The architecture in particular was hard to follow without better diagrams and images.

Jump to navigation. The book is best described as concise yet comprehensive, encyclopedic yet interpretive. Partha Mitter's thorough rooting in the studies of 19th century India aptly positions him to take a critical view of Indian art because it was then that the first histories of Indian art were written - imbued with the colonial culture and aesthetic biases. Mitter, in his new work spanning from the Indus Valley to the contemporary period, presents Indian art and architecture from an unconventional perspective. Circumventing the dynasties-based periodisation and the related notion of unilinear stylistic evolution centring exclusively around the so-called classical genres of Indian art, Mitter devotes a full section to minority traditions and non-canonical arts of tribal people, women and artisans.
