Akar Prakar presents 100 Years of Somnath Hore, a centenary celebration of 100 years of Somnath Hore. The exhibition presents both his prints and drawings, highlighting more than six decades of his practice. 

A printmaker, painter and sculptor, Somnath Hore’s works are a reflection of his sensitivity and empathy towards his subjects. Beginning his practice during some of the hardest social and political time in the country like the Bengal famine and the pre-independence struggle, Hore’s sketches were the visual representation of his first-hand experience. Experimenting with forms and techniques, specially in his printmaking, he was able to invent his own technique.

100 Years of Somnath Hore highlights the artist’s finest oeuvre and pays a fitting ode to the artist’s life and his artistic practice.
