Ragamala : paintings from India : from the Claudio Moscatelli Collection by Catherine Ann Glynn( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ragamala is a unique form of Indian miniature painting developed by combining a variety of sources including musical codes and accompanying poetry to indicate the time of day, or season, in which the melody should be performed. This new book, and the exhibition it accompanies, presents a fine and rare collection of twenty-four ragamala from the collection of Claudio Moscatelli. They are highly colored, very delicate, and beautifully executed miniatures dating from 1605 to c.1770. The book establishes the importance of ragamala's place in the history of world art and celebrates its literary content, its association with music, and its regional styles, and provides an interpretation of its symbolism in a way that makes it accessible to a contemporary audience

Beyond extravagance : a royal collection of gems and jewels( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a journey through the history of Indian jeweled objects. It will awaken a new understanding of the diverse tradition of Indian jewelry through pieces that span more than four hundred years. Assembled with a passion for gems and a love of Indian craftsmanship, each item sheds light on the evolution of style and technique in court jewelry from the peak of the Mughal imperial patronage, the rich commissions of Maharajas under the British Raj, the celebrated Indian commissions of Cartier, to the inventive creations of the 21st century. Key pieces include a carved jade dagger hilt owned by Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal; a group of engraved imperial Mughal spinels; a collection of enameled objects from Hyderabad, the Arcot II diamond and Taj Mahal emerald; a choker made by Cartier for the Maharaja of Patiala, as well as stunning contemporary creations by JAR and Bhagat using historic Indian stones"--Publisher's website
