This book, focusing on the history and development of art in Myanmar, has been written by a team of Myanmar scholars who are experts in this field and is the first comprehensive book covering Myanmar art of this scope. Myanmar art has recently begun to emerge as a force within the ASEAN art scene, with artists demonstrating the role that art can play in foging an identity in the 21st century. The artists and traditions that have shaped contemporary art in Myanmar are discussed in detail and the impact they have had on today's artists is demonstrated through discussions of the work of the leading artists in Myanmar today.
Also included in the book are artist biographies and an appendix of galleries in Myanmar and their represented artists.
