From the delicate beauty of the many schools of Indian miniature painting to the large scale temple wall decoration, cloth pichhvai’s and the popular paintings of Calcutta and the gloriously colored devotional print. Sculpture is represented again by studies of schools and styles, such as the Chola bronze and the various temple representations of the gods and goddesses in repose and vital action.
The Peabody Essex Museum houses the Figiel collection of Indian sculpture and has an excellent online catalog of the title Ritual bronzes of Maharashtra. The Freer Sackler Gallery has at the moment an excellent online feature Sensuous and the Sacred: Chola Bronzes.
Being offered are early black and white photogravures of the temples and their sculptural interiors by Martin Hurlimann, plus a collection of older devotional god and goddess prints.
