Sample text

Indian art in general, no doubt, provides adequate material for the study of decorative arts. But it is in the actual articles of daily use or other ancillary objects that the designs and motifs are so well preserved and handed down from generation to generation. A study of Indian art from a purely aesthetic point of view will reveal that over a wide field, in the artistic sensibility of the people, there is a surprising continuity from one epoch to another. The basic continuity is not achieved at the sacrifice of flexibility of forms and designs.

Our principal aim in presenting them in book form is to offer a glimpse into the rich store of Indian decorative art. I wish to express my thanks to Mr. N. R. Gopalakrishnan and to Mr. Gouri Ghose for their cooperation and particularly to the three artists, Miss Arati Roy, Mr. Indu Bhusan Gupta and Mr. Sushil Das, for the copy work. I am also grateful to Dr. Verrier El win and the Oxford University Press for the permission to reproduce the tribal decorations in the last four plates of the book.

I. Mookerjee, Ajit. II. Title. com FOREWORD THE ILLUSTRATIONS presented in this book have been selected from different sources as typical of Indian traditional designs and motifs. In spite of their variety and complexity, an unerring thread of continuity, growing out of the inner logic and dynamism of the people from region to region, connects these elements. These designs and motifs may be a great source of inspiration to the designer-artist who can take full advantage of them. All such designs have a special Indian quality and the designer-artist should be at home with them—and through them, with the treasures of India.
