Post a retrospective exhibition held by DAG in Mumbai in 2017 and New Delhi in 2018, the blue- chip gallery announces a unique exhibition on Altaf’s early drawings from the 1960s and ’70s, curated by his daughter Sasha Altaf, with an aim to place the artist’s formative years and art within his milieu including the books he read, the music he listened to, the films he watched, the actors and writers he admired, recreated in one of its Mumbai galleries. These early drawings—from academic studies to doodles and abstract watercolours—exhibit the range of his engagement with art in London and Bombay in this exciting period.
