Descripción

Following the success of Pattern and Ornament in the Arts of India, Henry Wilson has turned, for this companion volume, to a single theme. But what a theme: the variety of floral motifs in the exquisitely wrought details of India’s architectural wonders is boundless, and one can only marvel at the way in which the basic elements of wood, stone and plaster have been transformed into masterworks of decorative art. From the illustrious Mughal Empire during its greatest period of monument-building and artistic creativity to the time of British rule, which brought with it an unprecedented period of peace that allowed great wealth to be concentrated on the arts, the richness of India’s architecture is overwhelming. Henry Wilson’s fine photographs reveal the skill, patience and imagination of the many thousands of craftsmen who have turned to floral motifs and rendered them with precision and life-enriching creativity. Juxtaposed with the photographs are Wilson’s own detailed drawings, all created by hand but with a stencil-like clarity that helps us understand the original historical patterns. The result is an invaluable sourcebook that will appeal not only to those interested in one of the world’s oldest civilizations and greatest cultures, but also to anyone seeking inspiration for their own creations. Printed Pages: 272 with202 colour photographs & 87 drawings. Size: 21 x 30 Cm. N° de ref. de la librería 107400

Sinopsis:

A detailed view of the stunningly rich floral pattern in Indian architecture and design

Author of Pattern and Ornament in the Arts of India Henry Wilson has deepened his initial study of the decorative arts in India, creating a companion volume that focuses on a single theme: the floral motifs in India’s architecture. From the illustrious Mughal Empire during its greatest period of monument building and artistic creativity to the time of British rule, which brought with it a period of peace that allowed great wealth to be concentrated on the arts, the richness of India’s architecture is overwhelming.

Henry Wilson’s photographs reveal the skill, patience, and imagination of the thousands of craftsmen who have turned to floral motifs and rendered them with precision and creativity. Juxtaposed with the photographs are Wilson’s own graphic transpositions of the designs―detailed drawings created by hand but with a stencil-like clarity that helps us understand the original historical patterns. The result is an invaluable sourcebook that will appeal not only to those interested in one of the world’s oldest civilizations and greatest cultures but also to anyone seeking inspiration for their own graphic creations. 350 illustrations
