Being interested in India I was disappointed to find the Exhibition at Wallace Collection London was finishing before I could visit it so …… as I often do I bought the catalogue, being F.M:I.P.for the E.I.Co. Very glad I did. It arrived quickly without any delay and I am still enjoying the illustrations and narrative.
I loved the exhibition organised by William Dalrymple at the Wallage Gallery and this catalogue of the show is one to keep and enjoy for many year to come. I gave the book to a friend who also admires the skill and beauty of these Indian painters and he loved it.
This book is a masterpiece, I just loved it! Lots of paintings dating back from East India Company's time. The paintings are elaborated and explained very well by the authors! It is not just a kind of catalogue but a hand held device for these magnificent and veiled paintings which could be deciphered by the same. William Dalrymple and other authors has worked really well in this. Hope you will enjoy!
This comes closest to seeing the terrific talent of Indian artists patronised by the East India Company officials. The book is designed beautifully with a focus more on the artwork and is not very text dense. Recommended for anyone interested in indian art.
The Book itself is an excellent read, though I knew much of the information given, because that is one of my areas of interest. But ihe packet came half open and the voer and inner pages both in the front and the back were wet and I had to iron out the dampness to save the book. Please ensure that the books are well covered with plastic and put into a stiff box, so that they are not damaged.
