“A pioneering work of art-historical scholarship illuminated by revisionary contemporary critical and cultural frameworks … a landmark cosmopolitan contribution to the profound spirit of intellectual inquiry and aesthetic hospitality that have, through the centuries, inspired the arts of India.”

— Homi K. Bhabha, Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities,

“This wide-ranging, 750-page monument to the last century of art across South Asia puts its many movements and artists into authoritative context.”

— The New York Times Book Review

“At long last, Indian art from the long 20th century gets the forensic treatment.”

— The Art Newspaper

“An expansive and scholarly work [that] explores the many artists, ideas, philosophies and the often turbulent social and political upheavals that have fed into 100 years of art in India.”

— Hettie Judah, Art Quarterly

“A must read for art students, scholars, collectors, and enthusiasts alike. Some of the most interesting chapters are on figures who have slipped out of the pages of mainstream art history.”

— MintLounge

“Indian art has found an immensely impressive range of historians and commentators, and a global context, in this enormous, significant scholarly landmark. Micro stories and the big picture, peripheries and the center, colonial and postcolonial assumptions, modernism's freedoms and constraints: every tightrope is walked with balance and insight.”

— Financial Times

“A landmark publication … It would make an important addition to the shelves of any art lover's personal library.”

— Art Society Review

“Sumptuously produced … [an] essential critical compendium.”

— India Today

“A sea of riches … an irreplaceable resource … The more one tries to lasso the book and pull it closer for a comprehensive comment, the more it slips away into nooks and crannies of Indian art-making that are riveting. [Ultimately] it drives home the task it surely set itself: to entice, to reveal, to mystify, to clarify, to tantalize, to confuse, to provoke, to pacify, to anger, even, as much to delight … enacting the range of the art it captures, in as many compelling ways.”

— The Telegraph India

“For range and depth, a landmark in Indian art history. It pulls the marginal towards the centre yet keeps the big picture in view, rethinks modernism's freedoms, and troubles in a broadened global context and negotiates colonial and postcolonial assumptions with nuanced understanding.”

— Financial Times

“My vote for the most important book of the year goes to 20th Century Indian Art by Partha Mitter, Parul Dave Mukherji, and Rakhee Balaram. Beautifully produced and encyclopaedic, it provides expert insights on everything from street photography and installations to Regional Modern and Dalit art, and art and activism. It also includes sections on art from the diaspora and from other South Asian countries.”

— Manjula Narayan, Hindustan Times

“20th Century Indian Art illustrates styles of art and craft in India that are complex and deeply enmeshed with geopolitics, identity, nationhood, post-colonial sensibilities, and creative subjectivities. At every page, readers enjoy pleasant visuals and sound research in this highly instructive sourcebook, urging us to broaden our minds as we critically approach these unique strands of Indian art history.”

American Geography


“The photographs presented here by Black provide the same tenderness [as Lange and Evans]: carefully selected work that narrowly threads the needle. He gestures, never points. He empathizes, but does not pity. The photographs are remarkable… a lovely body of work.”

— New York Journal of Books

“The images are so vivid and riveting that you can't help but be drawn to them and the questions they ask… An essential document for our increasingly unsteady times.”

— The Washington Post

“These unforgettable photos of poverty challenge the idea of the American Dream… they call to mind the work of earlier documentarians who looked critically at American society, such as Robert Frank. Black wants the viewer to realize that this is what the details of inequality look like on the ground, and that it is the norm, not the exception, for a large swath of citizens.”

— Buzzfeed News

“A deafening boom that lays bare the harsh reality of inequality in America.”

— TIME (one of the Best Photobooks of 2021)

“The disconcerting reality that Black's compassionate yet sober eye reveals may be too uncomfortable for the casual viewer. Yet the images contained within American Geography and the subtle way these images are edited commands our attention and tells a story that demands to be seen.”

— PhotoBook Journal

“Compelling… As with his powerful photos, Black's written notebook entries offer simple, moving descriptions of the people he meets on his travels.”

— Daily News (Los Angeles)

“Visceral… Like [Robert] Frank's 'The Americans,' Black's contrasty, chiaroscuro photographs and travelogue reveal the hard truths: the United States in the 21st Century remains a country deeply divided and astonishingly poor… Black, like other committed photographers before him, is revealing to us who we are as Americans. It is up to us now to see.”
