Artistic tradition of India is rich in its content and diversity, spanning a period of over five thousand years, and extending its roots from Delhi to Chennai, and from Mumbai to Calcutta.
Visual arts of India hold a pride of place in the world of art. And irrespective of the origin in different times and regions, there is something immediately recognizable as Indian in these artifacts. The ‘Indianness’ comes from a common cultural thread, a certain general view of man’s nature and purpose.
Since the Indus period, India has boasted a well developed heritage in all forms of arts, including architecture, literature, sculptures, painting, music, dance, and theatre. All of these were handed down traditionally by word of mouth, giving rise to clans specializing in a particular discipline.
