Nalini Malani: Listening to the Shades [Hardcover]
Robert Storr (Author), Nalini Malani (Author)

This book offers a stunning revisualisation of the classic tale of Cassandra from Greek mythology, by one of today's most exciting Indian artists. This lavishly illustrated book presents facsimile reproductions of more than sixty paintings by celebrated modern artist, Nalini Malani. Inspired by Christa Wolf's writings on the ancient Greek myth of Cassandra, this exquisite series of paintings retells the tragic story of a woman whose premonitory gifts are ignored and denounced by society. Malani's breathtaking rendering of this classic narrative has deep resonance with the many challenges that women still face in every culture.
