Indian art : a concise history by Roy C Craven( Book )
59 editions published between 1975 and 2006 in English and French and held by 2,160 libraries worldwide
The grave, sensuous and infinitely varied arts of India have long been admired in the West. Until now there has been no concise guide to the subject as a whole. The author tells the story clearly and vividly from the first, still mysterious, beginnings in the Indus valley, through the great masterpieces of Buddhist and Hindu art to the coming of Islam, the eclectic culture of the Mughal court and the golden age of Indian miniature painting. Much of this art is immediately accessible to the outsider, but much is also enigmatic, needing interpretation and guidance before it can be enjoyed in depth: the strange pantheon of the Hindu gods, the subtle insights of Buddhist mysticism or the complex symbolism of the miniatures

"In preparation for a major exhibition of photographs of Maya art and of artifacts of Maya origin, Roy C. Craven, Jr., made three trips to Central America. His purpose was to record on film as completely and exactly as possible the art and architecture of the ancient Maya ceremonial centers. He made over 500 black-and-white photographs and 200 color transparencies at the following sites: Kaminaljuyú, Dzibilchaltún, Copán, Tikal, Palenque, Comalcalco, Uxmal, Sayil, Kabah, Labná, Xlampak, Chichen-Itzá, Mayapán, Tulúm, and Iximché. The exhibition was originally presented in March, 1970, at the University Gallery of the University of Florida, and it was in every way a success, touring various museums and art centers in the United States and in Guatemala. It was recognized that the Craven photographs, especially those in color, made a unique contribution to the knowledge of the known, as well as the less well-known, sites of the Maya"--Provided by publisher
