Emami Art presents one of the most comprehensive survey exhibitions of the artist Kartick Chandra Pyne in recent times.
A prolific and highly original modern painter, Kartick Chandra Pyne (1931-2017) embarked on his long artistic career in the late 1950s when the world and the very definition of what constituted art was rapidly changing. He, like many of his contemporaries, was deeply influenced by the tentative spirit of the time and adapted to the languages of western modern art, moving away from academic realism which he excelled in as a student of the Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata.
Bringing together a large body of work from an extended period of his creative life, primarily from the collection of Emami Art, the exhibition explores the artist’s complex artistic philosophy and practices and also their manifold significance in the contemporary world.
