Bhagwan Sri Abhinavagupta's most important work on the philosophy of art is Abhinavabhāratī – a long and complex commentary on Natya Shastra of Bharata Muni. This work has been one of the most important factors contributing to Abhinavagupta's fame up until present day.

Can I find an online version or a printed version?

Does this book have any translation ?

Here are all three volumes of Abhinavagupta's commentary in Sanskrit, in PDF format:

Volume 1

Volume 2

Volume 3

It has been translated into English, but it's not available online. It is available in print form though, here.
