Lecture 22 eva fernandez

The art of India is rigorously regulated and subject to a series of guidelines and laws that, since ancient times, have been transmitted from father to son and compiled in treatises. All these canons constitute an authentic grammar that the artist (sculptor, painter, dancer or actor), just as a poet would do with the rules imposed by his language, must use to combine and play with them to give birth to a creation that will always be unique and original.

Presumed interview of eva fernández to an ass.

This book is undoubtedly a milestone in the historical-artistic production of our country. Beyond the simple compilation and scrutiny of sources and bibliography, and the result of study and research in situ, the work of Eva Fernandez del Campo offers an overview of the creation in India unpublished to date. She does not limit herself, as is often the case, to the Hindu and Islamic periods, but considers it as a continuum that starts from prehistory and reaches the present day, so that each new evolutionary stage is understood on the basis of the assumption (and overcoming) of the contributions of previous strata. In this way, the different artistic manifestations are understood not as isolated entities but placed in a broad context that allows us to understand all their distinctive characteristics, as well as their different levels of meaning. Accompanied by a rich graphic corpus, extensive bibliographies and chronological tables that constitute a fundamental instrument to guide through a universe as complex and distant from our culture as that of India, and placing special emphasis on a careful transcription of Sanskrit, The Art of India is an unquestionable reference (not only in the national but also in the international field) for anyone who wants to know (and deepen) one of the most ancient cultures of the planet that has maintained its relevance to the present day.
