This volume explores the beautiful Ritikavya compositions, particularly those of Matiram, and their visual rendering in the paintings of Purkhu and his school of paintings. It discusses the poetics of Ritikavya and evolution of the Purkhu school and Kangra paintings. It presents the text of Matiram's Rasraj dohas in Braj and gives their meaning in English. Numerous paintings, a visual treat for the readers, are reproduced here to show how Matiram's lyrics and imagery have seamlessly sculpted into visual poetry.
