dolls, collectors are offered guidelines to help them identify quality in contemporary
Indian art, distinguish what dealers are reputable and which are not; learn how to
recognize fraudulent work and know what to do if non-authentic merchandise is purchased;
and learn more through recommended reading lists. Indian artists and art experts explain
