A Mystical Realm of Love: Pahari Paintings from the Eva and Konrad Seitz Collection. By J.P. Losty.

This magesterial catalogue of the Eva and Konrad Seitz Collection of Pahari miniature paintings provides more than the standard descriptive analysis that is usually presented in such books, and serves as an important addition to the scholarship of classical Indian painting. Eva and Konrad Seitz began collecting Pahari miniature paintings in the late 1960s, recognising the significance of Rajput paintings that originated from the Hindu schools of northern India and Rajasthan between the seventeenth century and the nineteenth over the more popular naturalistic Mughal paintings.
