The present show revisits a historical moment in art history with the works of four great acclaimed Masters of Indian art: Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Gopal Ghosh, and Gobardhan Ash and also makes an attempt to question a number of just stated such ‘little tested assumptions’ at a time when more mass culture has spawned its spurious harmonies.

Eyes on Life - Drawings of Satish Gujral at Aakriti Art Gallery ,Picasso Bithi,Orbit Enclave first floor

December 9, 2011 at 12pm to December 31, 2011 at 7pm

These delightful drawings…See More
