Flowers, Arthur;Curtis, Anthony;Neiman, Leroy
This coffee-table art book is one-of-a-kind. From hundreds of portrayals created over centuries by celebrated artists, such as Cezanne, Picasso, Munch, Leger, de la Tour, Remington, and Neiman, the best 120 were chosen to appear in this provocative visual documentation of the evolution of gambling. Much more than a compilation of subject-specific art, this book offers a scholarly look at the history of gaming. Each image is accompanied by a facing page of text, providing readers with a thumbnail sketch of the artist, then zeroing in on the image itself. The renderings, as seen through the artist's eye and preserved on canvas or in stone, serve as a form of 'photographic' chronicling that weaves a history of gambling through the ages - for the benefit of art lovers and gambling enthusiasts alike. 231pp. N.B. Tiny closed tear to bottom edge of front D/J.

Sinha, Gayatri
Krishen Khanna speaks of his drawing as an intuitive process, "I start to scratch the surface of piece of paper. Soon enough, the pencil moves as if of its own accord, putting my hand this way and that rather like a pencil in a planchet creating a nervous scribble meaningful only to the directing ghost..." In an output of painting that exceeds fifty years, Khanna attracts more than one reading of his work. His paintings and drawings emerge as nuanced narratives in which the artist plays out his formal concerns, as well as the shifting and unfolding theatre of human relationships. Politics and identity remain fluid in the larger question of humanity. Effectively, the paintings constitute a powerful psychological engagement, one that also serves as a document of the passage of time in modern India. While many Indian artists during these decades have slipped in and out of experimentation with other media, Khanna has remained faithful to painting and drawing as central to his art practice. Retrospectively, in a career that has spanned nearly six decades, his large body of work places him at the apex of engagement with everyday Indian life. 120pp.
