This is the first-ever history of art written in the country, which discusses artistic forms and personal identities of artists as a discourse on the modern and contemporary art of Pakistan. The author argues that Pakistani art is a distinct facet of the Muslim heritage of the subcontinent. A separate chapter deals with Pakistan’s women artists, who are defining their independent role in the gender context. A chapter on sculpture draws notice for the first time to its lively existence in Pakistan.
