'As boundaries slowly dissolve and interactive realities become evident, the cultures of India and Pakistan are beginning to draw attention. Recent exchanges have taken place in the realm of music, cinema, and other cultural forms. Moreover, both nations share a heritage of Mughal miniatures, Rajasthani and Pahari art, and are bound together by history and the problematics of the present. The contemporary art of the two countries, in all its vitality, today has a fascinating new identity. This richly illustrated book reveals the heterogenous, complex, and vibrant life of the subcontinent of South Asia that is reflected through both Pakistani and Indian art.' - excerpt from front flap

Salima Hashmi and Yashodhara Dalmia trace the historical development of art in Pakistan and India respectively, discuss the work of women artists and influential artist groups, ending with an overview of the hybrid styles of young artists, which are at once international and local. Edited and with an introduction by Yashodara Dalmia.
