The first book in English to provide a full and clear introduction to the imagery and verse related to one of the most significant of Indian gods, this volume was written by a former keeper of the Indian section of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London - W.G.Archer.
His history of the depiction of Krishnas life and deeds traces the gods many aspects, from warrior to cowherd to prince. 39 black-and-white plates of Illustrations follow, each accompanied by a commentary. The author identifies the source of each painting and discusses its inspiration and symbolism, revealing a wealth of subtle and poetic detail in every peacock feather and lotus blossom.
