This impressively researched, eloquently written, and sumptuously illustrated catalogue of Central Indian Paintings and drawings in the Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art in Hyderabad is an important contribution to the study of Indian miniature painting. It presents some of the finest examples of so-called "Malwa" style paintings, which are properly assigned to Bundelkhand and provides the first in-depth study of painting at such centres as Orchha, Datia, and Sitamau. The extensive section on Raghogarh painting is truly groundbreaking, and include a comprehensive discussion of the Raghogarh style in its historical context, incisive analyses of many unpublished masterpieces, and the identification of the first major artist to work in that state. The superb quality of the illustrations, the insightfulness of the text, and the inclusion of the key comparative material make this book essential to anyone who enjoys or studies Indian paintings.
