Woodcut Prints of Nineteenth Century Calcutta by Ashit Paul

Rs 500.00

About the Book:

Ashit Paul, artist and designer, offers a collection of early Calcutta woodprints-mythological, social scenes, book illustrations and advertising-all from between 1816 and the early years of the twentieth century, with four essays by scholars and artists on different aspects of this popular urban art tradition. They project an image of Calcutta rarely revealed in such graphic candour and richness, with a whole history of manners, mores, traditional beliefs and conflicts, often with humour and invariably with a sense of down-to-earth realism
