The riches of the collection of Indian manuscript painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston are celebrated in this thorough and beautifully illustrated oversized (9.5x10.5") volume, which focuses on a selection of 125 works. Cummins, a former curator at the MFA and now a freelance art historian, has written a detailed text which will be of interest to the general reader, but will also be of value in the classroom. In addition to the well-known Mughal period, Cummins discusses the schools, styles, and subjects of painting practiced in the Deccan, Rajput, Rajasthan, Punjab, and during the colonial period. Painting techniques and materials are the subject of a separate chapter, and a glossary of terms is provided. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
