Description About the author
 
These lavishly illustrated books are the first and second in a series of three cataloging the Asian art collection at the Norton Simon Museum. Each work of art is fully illustrated and discussed, and both volumes include substantial introductions that shed light on the aesthetic and metaphysical underpinnings of these masterpieces.
Volume 1 focuses on sculptures from the Indian subcontinent, except those from the Himalayas. Representing almost all schools of Indian sculptural art and three major religions Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism the works span two millennia, from the second century B.C.E. to the eighteenth century C.E. The collection's many highlights include a particularly fine assemblage of South Indian bronzes of the Chola period.
