This book traces the evolution of Baroda, India, as an important centre of contemporary art and art education from the nineteenth century up until the last decade of the twentieth century. Art in its historical context; art and education as life vocations; art as an effective deterrent to dehumanization; the formation of a distinct vision of art through a mingling of the past and the present, the immediate and the distant ― these are some of the complex issues the book attempts to articulate through its discussion of the work of three generations of artists in Baroda.

Includes chronology of events, bibliography and index.
