Devi Prasad (1921--June 1, 2011) was an Indian artist and peace activist. He was a pioneering studio potter, painter, designer, photographer, art educator and peace activist. He studied at Rabindranath Tagore's Santiniketan and also at Sevagram. This catalog includes a selection from his 65 year long career, and argues for an aesthetic basis for India's freedom movement--rooted in the English Arts and Crafts Movement--and its influence on the founders of that movement.
