Art Experience, first published in 1954, is a collection of fifteen remarkable essays on Indian art and aesthetics by Prof. M. Hiriyanna. In about a hundred pages, the learned professor gives the readers the quintessence of two thousand years of study and development of aesthetics in India. In his essays, Hiriyanna focusses on the core concepts of Indian Aesthetics – rasa, dhvani, aucitya, and vakrokti – and not on peripheral issues. He argues that art must not be preachy but should never ignore dharma. Relying primarily on experience, he shows how the Indian approach to aesthetics, which is not divorced from philosophy, has universal relevance.

About the Author

Mysore Hiriyanna (1871-1950) was a well-known Sanskrit professor and an authority on Indian philosophy and aesthetics. Intimately familiar with the classics of Sanskrit and English, Hiriyanna devoted his life to the cause of making clear and accessible the wisdom of ancient India. He set the standard for scholars writing about Indian subjects in English. All through his life he remained a quiet, humble, disciplined, and altruistic person who primarily sought to better himself as a human being.
