The Pramila and Indru Kriplani Collection of Modern Indian Painting
MARCH 28 – MAY 22, 2011
This small exhibition features works of art by Indian artists—Jamini Roy, Lalu Prasad Shaw, Manu Parekh, and Ghopal Ghosh—who worked towards reconciling modern art innovations of the West with traditional Indian style art. Roy, the acclaimed Bengali painter, drew on local traditions, particularly Kalighat painting, for his inspiration. This painting of the Hindu deity Krishna reflects those folk influences while the work of others included in this exhibition – found quite different solutions.
