Published in conjunction with the Asia Society's major international loan exhibition The Arts of Kashmir, this comprehensive catalogue by leading academics in the visual culture of Kashmir, explores Kashmir's rich artistic and intellectual ferment between the fourth and nineteenth centuries. The catalogue, featuring 125 objects of exemplary quality, includes both religious and secular arts, providing a holistic view of the cultural achievements of the people of Kashmir. Examples of Kashmir's little-known works of Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic art are presented along with famed crafts works, ranging from furniture and papier-mch work to carpets and embroidery, to provide a sense of the broad artistic contributions of this region.The essays discuss early painting, textile, sculptural and literary traditions in Kashmir, with a particular focus on the intersection of these traditions with artistic, religious and cultural practices in the local and wider regions. Exhibition schedule: Asia Society, New York: 1 October 2007 - 6 January 2008 Cincinnati Art Museum: 28 June - 21 September 2008
