About Book
"Domains of Wonder" presents a cross-section of the San Diego Museum of Art's Edwin Binney 3rd Collection of Indian painting, featuring significant pieces never before published. Paintings and manuscripts dating from approximately 1300 to 1900 are reproduced with full-page, full-colour illustrations, each with a catalogue entry that brings to life the content and context of the picture. The lucid three-part introduction discusses aspects of the unique culture in which patrons and painters worked together to create some of the finest paintings ever to emerge from India. Major artistic movements are discussed, as are rare and little-known passages in the history of Indian painting, amply supplemented with translations of inscriptions and excerpts from primary sources. This book serves as an accessible introduction for non-specialists as well as a useful reference for scholars and students.
