Professor Ordhendra Coomar Gangoly (1881-1974), a leading authority on Indian art, was one of the founders of the Indian Society of Oriental Art, which was established in Calcutta in 1907. Gangoly was Honorary Secretary to the Society for several years, and subsequently became its Vice President. It was during this time that he published Rupam, an illustrated quarterly journal of Indian art which was in circulation between 1920 and 1930. Gangoly "... was the author of many pioneering works on Indian art, music and culture. Masterpieces of Rajput Painting, 1926 and Ragas and Raginis, 1935 are two of his most highly regarded publications." (Critical Collective, online) The present lot, Masterpieces of Rajput Painting, is rare to find, and features carefully selected paintings.
