Emami Art presents NS Bendre: Drawings, Sketches, Watercolours, an exhibition that brings together some 40 rarely shown artworks on paper from across the artist’s career, revealing the intimate bonding he felt with the world. NS Bendre had a prolific career, travelling widely and producing a large body of drawings, sketches, and watercolours of the sites and people he encountered.  Resisting the impulse of modernism, he used art to get closer to the object, exploring the magic of mimesis, the sense that the picture has an organic bond with what it is a picture of.
