This eBook makes a comparative study of the Japanese ideologue Okakura Kakuro and the Indian artist Abanindranath Tagore with a view to developing homologous processive structures of colonial-national engagement. Issues of ‘hybridity’ and ‘cultural purity’ are explored along with notions of strategic essentialism and the construction of a national art history as a field of hybrid discourse.
