Journeys: Four Generations of Indian Artists in Their Own Words free pdf In this two-volume publication, noted art historian and curator Yashodhara Dalmia maps the developments in Indian art through conversation with 30 Indian artists from across four generations. In these rare interviews, acclaimed practitioners like J. Swaminathan, F.N. Souza, Tyeb Mehta, K.G. Subramanyan, Satish Gujral, and M.F. Husain talk about critical issues in art creation and appreciation, including the social perception of art, influences in Indian art, and traditional versus modern sensibilities. From the initial years of art creation as it took root in a newly independent country to the struggle of modern Indian art to establish itself in the face of conservative Indian sensibilities-these interviews reveal the social, cultural, and historical matrix of art and art creation spread over the last 60 years. Volume II includes interviews of Jatin Das, Rameshwar Broota, Arpana Caur, Subodh Gupta, and Anju Dodiya, among others. With more than 80 paintings, this volume records the thoughts and ideas of artists whose works have profoundly influenced the course of Indian art in the twentieth century.
