Citrasutra of the Visnudharmottara Purana

"It Has Been Beautiful Produced....... Citrasutra of the Visnudharmottara Purana the Book Presents Intersting Readings as It Includes all the Information Given By The Previous Scholars And Other Texts Regarding the Use And Interpretation Of Technical Terms,Techniques Of Painting And Its Classification.The Author Has Been Successful In The Task She Sets Before Herself To Present A Thoughtful Interpretation Of A Text And The Underlying Aesthetic Theory Of Indian Art And Its Relevance Today.

The author contends that these pieces only make sense when placed inside a framework, which must by definition be contingent, which runs counter to the conventional wisdom that the past may be accessed by us in an unmediated manner via the sacred parts of the texts.

The Citrasutra, which is made up of nine adhyayas or chapters and can be found in the third khanda of the Visnudharmottara Purana, is presented as a work that has been "discovered" and interpreted in a variety of ways in the introduction. As a consequence of this, it has a lengthy history of interpretation that has been contributed to by some of the most influential art historians of the 20th century, such as A. K. Coomaraswamy, Stella Kramrisch, and C. Sivaramamurti. The concerns of art historians, which are bound up with themes of Indian identity and the building of an authentic past, are the source of the interest in the book. This has sparked interest in the work.
