About the Book

In The Transformation of Nature in Art, Ananda Coomaraswamy explains the theory behind medieval European and Asian art, especially art in India. He further supplements the Indian theory with that of the Chinese.

The comparison with medieval European art in this respect is extremely illuminating. He further shows that both differ radically from post-Renaissance European art.
