No other state in the Indian Union has a long and continuous painting tradition as Tamil Nadu. The book takes the reader along a journey of a study of the paintings from pre-historic times to the 20th century; from cave art in dense jungles to temples that were royal undertakings and temples in remote villages; to collections buried in dusty archives and to those in well-known museums. The book includes, for the first time, paintings that have been scraped away from the walls and ceilings of some temples. Based on impeccable research and sumptuously produced with illustrations and colour plates, the book presents a comprehensive history of painting in Tamil Nadu.
