By: Majumdar, Soumik Nandy.
Publisher: Kolkata Akar Prakar 2015Description: 120p.ISBN: 9789385360015.Subject(s): Art, Bengali | Art, IndicDDC classification: 954.02 | M289e Summary: Published on the occasion of the show 8 Bengal Masters: Miracles of Existence, this volume explores the post-Colonial context of Bengal that produced some of the finest artists of all times. Focusing on eight eminent artists, from various practices of print-making, sculpture and painting, it traces how they embarked on individual artistic journeys fostered by a renewed modernist search for an appropriate style in tandem with their responses to the contemporary situation. The eight artists showcased here redefined the quest for a personal idiom not as a mere stylistic search but as the intimate and mutually transforming dialogue between individual and the world - both social and natural. From this perspective, this book takes a fresh look at the works of these artists as some of the best examples of the socially-relevant, liberating aesthetics of the post-'40s modern Indian art.
