Ragachitra: Deccani Ragamala Paintings by Dr Daljeet from Niyogi Books.
Ragachitra: Deccani Ragamala Paintings presents exquisite miniature art from Bijapur, rendered in the Deccan style (19th century). A set of 44 unpublished ragamala paintings in possession of the National Museum, Delhi since 1989 has been displayed, retaining its original brilliance.
The paintings stand apart in their vibrant visual appeal, depth and range of content and in the perfect symphony created between art and music. A lucid narrative documents the history of Indian classical music, the range of traditions of the raga theory and their miniature visual forms created in medieval India. It is a delightful and overwhelming aesthetic and intellectual experience for the reader.
