From the beginning, folk art - as distinct from the art of the royal courts and temple towns - has played a constant and important role. The influence of folk art upon the Indian cultural sphere remains no less potent today than in the past. Indian Folk Art represents the first attempt to present this history: first, as an uninterrupted tradition extending back more than twelve millennia and second, as the art of the Indian people in the broadest sense - the people who first settled the subcontinent.
