Abstract :
Fifth in a series of 6 books which form the main texts of an Open University course. This volume focuses both on the creation and critique of 'Western' viewpoints on art and its histories, and on the idea of cultural difference entailed in the concept of 'non-Western' art. Texts are: 'Mapping difference,' by Gavin Jantjes; 'James Fergusson's history of Indian architecture,' by Colin Cunningham; 'Parity with the West: the flowering of medieval Indian art,' by Catherine King; 'Decadent art of south Indian temples,' by Partha Mitter; 'What about Chinese art?' by Craig Clunas; 'O Aleijadinho : sculptor and architect,' by Tim Benton with Nicola Durbridge; 'Rabindranath Tagore: making modern art in India before independence,' by Catherine King with Nicola Durbridge; 'Modern art in Nigeria: independence and innovation,' by Catherine King with Nicola Durbridge; and 'The artist as a post-colonial subject and this individual's journey towards the centre,' by Rasheed Araeen. ;
