Contemporary Indian Art is, give or take a decade, three quarters of a century old. This book covers artists who worked, grew to maturity and established themselves in the post-Independence years. Lakshmi Lal brings to their work the insights of a seasoned viewer whose joy in experiencing art is both infectious and illuminating.

This book is a collection of articles on contemporary Indian art written mainly for The Times of India in the 1980s. It includes an extensive feature written for Taj Magazine on artists working in Mumbai and the text written in 1992 for the catalogue of a specially curated show (Journeys within Landscapes) mounted by the Sakshi Gallery.
