1 - 2 weeks availability
George Michell provides a pioneering and richly illustrated introduction to the architecture, sculpture and painting of southern India under the Vijayanagara empire and the states that succeeded it. This period, encompassing some four hundred years, from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries, was endowed with an abundance of religious and royal monuments which remain as testimonies to the history and ideology behind their evolution. The author evaluates the legacy of this artistic heritage, describing and illustrating buildings, sculptures and paintings that have never been published on before. In a previously neglected area of art history, he presents an original and much-needed reassessment.
