Exploring India's Sacred Art- Selected Writings of Stella Kramrisch.

Aarti Kawlra

Abstract


This article is a review of Exploring India’s Sacred Art: Selected Writings of Stella Kramrisch. Kramrisch’s career as scholar and curator spanned over half a century of research in the field of Indian art. Her work tried to see Indian art from both the existing colonial and imperialist biases and the later western aestheticism in order to give it its own particular identity.
