Architecture and Art Of Southern India

By Michell, George

George Michell considers the artistic heritage of the architecture, sculpture and painting of the Vijayanagara empire and the successor states. The period, encompassing some four hundred years, was endowed with an abundance of religious and royal monuments, which remain as testimonies to the history and ideology behind their evolution. In a previously neglected area of art history, the author presents an original and much needed re-assessment, evaluating buildings, sculptures and paintings that have never been published on before. CONTENTS: Preface; l. Introduction 2. Historical framework 3. Temple architecture: the Kannada and Telugu zones 4. Temple architecture: the Tamil zone 5. Palace architecture 6. Sculpture 7.
