A Historical Epic: India in the Making, 1757-1950 : from Surrender to Revolt, Swaraj to Responsibility : Curated Exhibition-auction
An ambitious book, it comes form the public stables of auctioneer, collector and writer of art books, Neville Tuli Coming at a time when international interest in popular India is at its peak, these oleographs, photographs, engravings, lithographs, film posters, calendar kirsch, song synopses and rare books cover almost two hundred years of the colonial experience. As you browse through the auction exhibition, you can dip into visuals as diverse as the pioneering canvases of the Bengal School, the poster patriotism of Hindi films or the pompously posey pictures of Indian royalty. Other trinkets: wood-cuts of the nationalist struggle, the Bharat Mata calendar industry and celebratory lithographs of British wars on Indian soil.
