Introduction Picture Showmen: Insights into the Narrative Tradition in Indian Art, edited by Jyotindra Jain,

Title:Introduction Picture Showmen: Insights into the Narrative Tradition in Indian Art, edited by Jyotindra Jain,
Author:Jain, Jyotindra
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 49-3, p. 8-21
Abstract:The present volume focuses on the narrative traditions of Indian storytellers' paintings, but this core theme is placed in the wider context of narrativity in Indian art in general. Indian traditions of storytelling, often accompanied by painted panels or scrolls, can be traced back through literary evidence to at least the second century BCE and are known to have existed almost all over the subcontinent. Buddhist, Brahmanical, and Jaina literature contains abundant references to the art of painted scrolls which were exhibited in ancient times to educate and entertain. The most crucial features of visual narrativization in Indian art are highlighted through the essays in this book.
