The presence of Śiva by Stella Kramrisch( Book )

34 editions published between 1981 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the three great gods of Hinduism, Siva is a living god. The most sacred and most ancient book of India, The Rg Veda, evokes his presence in its hymns; Vedic myths, rituals, and even astronomy testify to his existence from the dawn of time. In a lively meditation on Siva--based on original Sanskrit texts, many translated here for the first time--Stella Kramrisch ponders the metaphysics, ontology, and myths of Siva from the Vedas and the Puranas. Who is Siva? Who is this god whose being comprises and transcends everything? From the dawn of creation, the Wild God, the Great Yogi, the sum of all opposites, has been guardian of the absolute. By retelling and interweaving the many myths that keep Siva alive in India today, Kramrisch reveals the paradoxes in Siva's nature and thus in the nature of consciousness itself. -- Back cover

Francesco Clemente : three worlds by Ann Percy( Book )

11 editions published in 1990 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francesco Clemente: Three Worlds brings together more than 100 works on paper--watercolors, pastels, gouaches, folding screens, and books--by the contemporary Italian artist Francesco Clemente. The exhibition reflects Clemente's interest in the cultures of Italy (where he was born), India (where he visits each year), and New York (where he now resides). Each of these "worlds" possesses its own sensibility. While working in Italy, Clemente is affected by the artistic genius of its ancient past. The mystical traditions of India and its cultural, racial, and religious diversity also attract him. In 1982, Clemente moved to New York, where he finds the cosmopolitan aspect of the city and its unique blend of "high" and "low" culture exhilarating. Known for his highly inventive, personal imagery often presented in a dreamlike, surrealist style, Clemente enjoys an international reputation as one of the most provocative and gifted young Italian painters. His superb command of draftsmanship and sumptuous use of color make his images compelling, however the personal nature of many of these images also lend them an alien, irrational aura. In many ways, the viewer cannot explain or understand Clemente's imagery, but is simply left to behold

Painted delight : Indian paintings from Philadelphia collections : Philadelphia Museum of Art, January 26 to April 20, 1986 by Stella Kramrisch( Book )

13 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During three centuries of princely patronage, Indian artists produced luminous paintings for books and albums which continue to enchant viewers today. Scenes from the lives of the great emperors, verdant hills and flowering gardens, real and mythical animals, episodes of the hunt, and love idylls were transferred in glowing colors onto the painted page. The high level of artistic experience in which they were conceived, painted, and contemplated, gives the work of numerous schools and widely different styles freshness and radiance. Painted Delight: Indian Paintings from Philadelphia Collections includes some 140 masterworks of the Mughal and Rajput schools, many of which have never before been exhibited or published. The exhibition is organized by Stella Kramrisch, Curator Emeritus of Indian Art, as part of the nationwide Festival of India in 1985-86
