An elegantly written and very beautifully illustrated volume that fills a gap in modern and contemporary art in India. The key trends in modern art in India that emerged from the turn of twentieth century until the end of the millennium are presented in this volume which aims to place Indian art in a context of cultural nationalism and the formation of new institutions. Section one of this book focuses on the first five decades of the twentieth century, which introduced new definitions of art practices shaped both by colonialism and the cultural politics of nationalism. The second section looks at the art scene that emerged in the wake of India's independence. This period coincides with a new openness toward internationalism in the 1950s. By the 1960s, internationalism loses its thrust with various indigenous moves toward native sources of art language.
