THE VILLAGE GODS OF SOUTH INDIA.

In a letter of November 6 1966, the late  Art historian of South Asian art  Ms Stella Kramrisch (1896 Nikolsburg (now Mikulov), Czech Republic – 1993 Philadelphia, PA) , at that time  Curator of Indian Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art asked and then obtained  some photographs from the late American Artists Mr  Harry Holtzman  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Holtzman (1912 NYC – 1987 Lyme Ct) for her scheduled exhibition on traditionally Indian village Art “Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and Village”(Philadelphia Museum of Art 1968). (Source: Harry Holtzman paper, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University, New Haven CT USA).
