Description

Born in 1877 in Ceylon, Ananda Coomaraswamy was a pioneer philosopher and art historian, credited with introducing ancient Indian art and culture to the West. Trained as a geologist and botanist, Coomaraswamy turned to art and aesthetics at the beginning of the 20th century, in an effort to educate the world, and particularly Western artists, about Indian aesthetics. In 1917, he moved to the United Stated to serve as the first Keeper of Indian art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Over his thirty years at the Museum, till his death in 1947, he wrote several exhibition catalogues, and published the seminal volume History of Indian and Indonesian Art in 1927.

This set of publications includes an unabridged and unaltered 1965 republication of this volume, along with Coomaraswamy's introduction to Indian art, and a 1977 exhibition catalogue from the Museum of Fine Arts commemorating the 100th anniversary of his birth.
