To compare Indian art historiography with art historiography in general, we need first to constellate these categories - general art historiography with western art historiography and Indian art historiography with the art historiography of colonized people.  Art History as a nascent discipline is born in the west, particularly in Renaissance Florence, in the work of Giorgio Vasari (1511-74).  It took shape as a discipline under circumstances similar to the birth of all modern academic disciplines, as a way to arrive at a complete and comprehensive knowledge of the human species and its world, in its historical evolution towards perfect rationality. Art was seen as a precious human expression, capturing the truth of beauty in the natural world and the Renaissance was seen as its most fulfilled, rational and technically perfect manifestation. This provided a datum for the comparative measurement of the art of other periods and places in Europe.
