Description
Illustrated with 300 color and 175 black and white photos and reproductions of art, this large volume fully catalogs the significant collection of South Asian and Islamic Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Curator Joseph Dye describes the sculpture, painting, decorative arts, and textiles of the subcontinent, emphasizing the development of major religions and the dominant role of religion in art and life.

"Each entry of the collection, which ranges from 1200 B.C.E. to the early 20th century, is documented with title, date, medium, size, provenance, exhibition history, and notes. The appendixes include translations of texts and inscriptions and technical studies of objects in the section on decorative arts.... This monumental tome is a worthy addition to art collections in academic and large public libraries."Library Journal
