An important aspect of DAGโ€™s collaborative efforts has been to work with institutions and museums, establishing comprehensive public-private museum exhibitions such as those it had undertaken at Delhiโ€™s Red Fort (Drishyakala) or Kolkataโ€™s Old Currency Building (Ghare Baire) with Archaeological Survey of India.

Drishyakala was an extraordinary visual arts showcasing, one that not only highlighted a part of Indiaโ€™s historical trajectory but also provided a valuable glimpse of the diverse panoply of Indian art through four iconic exhibitions with over 450 artworks spread over 27,000 square feet.

Ghare Baire showcased over 200 years of art in Bengal. Presented in collaboration with the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Archaeological Survey of India, the exhibition was housed at the historic Currency Building, across twelve galleries featuring over 700 artworks - the largest showcase of Bengal Art, presenting a panoramic view of the evolution of art in a region that has been critical to the development of Indian modern art.

DAG has also run exhibition programmes with the National Gallery of Modern Art, the Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai, as well as at Jawahar Kala Kendra in Jaipur, the Lalit Kala Akademi in Chandigarh, and other important institutions.

Itโ€™s true that the Taj Mahal is a cliche โ€” the monument every traveller to India must see, the most photographed building in the world โ€” but is it also the most painted subject for artists?

While weโ€™ll never know that, its lure is unmistakable. While Orientalist landscapes and figurative subjects were common among European artists during the 18th and 19th centuries, depictions of India were rare given how difficult the journey to India was. But those who braved it also headed to Agra for a glimpse of the white marble dome and turrets of the monument to love that had fascinated them ever since it was built in the 17th century by a mourning emperor.

These three paintings by various artists may share their subject in common but differ in their treatment and style that makes these odes to the monument works of outstanding art. In an era of mobile phone photography, it makes these paintings and the effort that went into their making all the more impressive.

05/15/2024

At a time when film personalities were becoming the new icons of hope for an emerging nation, among those capturing these hopes and aspirations on film was photographer Jethalal H. Thakker. A post-Partition refugee from Karachi who had served as a civilian photographer for the British army before Independence, Thakker set up India Photo Studio in 1948, next to Chitra Cinema in central Bombay, at the time a major hub for film production.

Among the stars Thakker photographed were Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Nargis, Meena Kumari and Vajanthimala, who dropped in for photo shoots and publicity stills for photosets, showcards and posters. The camaraderie and comfort he evoked is as evident in his pictures as is his skill as a photographer. He was one of the first photographers to employ a play of light and shadow to create dramatic effects. With the imaginative use of โ€˜dinkyโ€™ spotlights, shadow-textured backgrounds, props and costumes, he presented his subjects with an air of dignity as well as glamour.

At a time when printing and film rolls were expensive, he usually shot just one precise frame using a Graflex or Rolleiflex camera.

In the early nineteenth century, Calcutta, the city of joy, was at the height of its golden age. Known as the City of Palaces or St. Petersburg of the East, Calcutta was the richest, largest and the most elegant colonial city of India.

The Victoria Memorial Hall was proposed by Viceroy Curzon to commemorate Queen Victoria after her death in 1901. It was opened to the public in 1921, a hundred years ago. It was โ€˜crowd fundedโ€™, used marble from Makrana in Rajasthan, and was in part inspired by the Taj Mahal.

Built in 1803, it was known as Government House during the Company rule in India and the British Raj. After the transfer of power from the East India Company to the British Crown in 1858, it became the official residence of the Viceroy of India, moving here from the Belvedere Estate. With the shifting of the Indian capital from then Calcutta to Delhi in 1911, it became the official residence of Lieutenant Governor of Bengal. Since Indian independence in 1947, it has served as the official residence of the Governor of West Bengal and is known as the Raj Bhavan, a name it shares with the official residences of other statesโ€™ governors.

The Calcutta Museum, now the Indian Museum, was the first of its kind in British India. For the British, museums were places to put on display what they had learned about India. Asserting the right to interpret our past, through museums and the objects they hold, was an important way to fight for freedom.

The ๐˜š๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ช images in Early Bengal art served as pin-ups for gentrified audiences but had a dark history. When ๐˜ด๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข was banned in the nineteenth century, innumerable widowed women of Hindu faith were forced to fend for themselves because their families cast them out of their own homes. At the time, watercolour Kalighat pats, early Bengal oil paintings, and popular prints documented social changes that were influenced by the colonial British administration, at times through visual metaphors or stereotypes. These Sundaris were most likely to be widows who had learned the arts of performance, music, danceโ€”and seductionโ€”not so much out of choice as much as survival.

A highly decorated political figure in late nineteenth century India, Raja Sir T Madhava Raoโ€™s contributions had far reaching consequences in princely India.

With an exceptional administrative career as the Dewan of three statesโ€”Travancore (1857-72), Indore (1873-75) and later Baroda (1875-82), Madhava Rao was instrumental in reforming the legislation, revenue, education and land policies of these states, transforming them, especially Travancore into a โ€˜Model stateโ€™.

But what perhaps is the most interesting is his role in advocating for a โ€˜specialโ€™ education for Maharajas of the Princely statesโ€”lessons that would enable them to fulfill their duties to the state.

While in Baroda, Madhava Rao was tasked with the responsibility of preparing Sayaji Rao Gaekwad III for the throne. The lectures Rao gave the young prince on political ethics, governance and legal principles were compiled in a book ๐˜”๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ด, printed by the Baroda durbar. A treatise on the ideals of statesmanship for the modern age, ๐˜”๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ด, as the name suggests, contains invaluable hints on the art of governance.

Poet, novelist, musician, playwright, and Asiaโ€™s first Nobel prize awardeeโ€”which he won for literature in 1913โ€”Rabindranath Tagore, born 163 years ago, took to painting and drawing when in his sixties.

Representing a distinct break from the Indian classical tradition and the Bengal Schoolโ€”initiated by his nephew Abanindranath Tagore and enriched by other members of his familyโ€”Tagoreโ€™s paintings and drawings reflected the influence of artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Gerhard Marx, Georg Muche, and Gropius, as well as the impact of Freudian psycho-analysis. The deeply agonised, distorted faces seemed to be looking into their own fathomless self, and the images emerging from the subconscious depths.

In his own photographs he comes across as contemplative โ€” a deep thinker who, despite the challenges posed in his life, overcame those circumstances to give himself to a world of literature and art.

The female body has been a muse for generations of artists before the โ€˜male gazeโ€™ consigned it to history. But its heritage has survived by way of works that reach out to us from a past when its form was admired, celebrated and feted. Indian art has had a rich tradition of extolling the human body within its narrative tradition, but it was modernism that brought the n**e into sharp focus as the subject of and by itself. Period.

This selection of n**es represents the manner in which the female form has been exemplified by some of Indiaโ€™s great masters, bestowing it with beauty, studying the anatomy, or embodying it in an expressionistic manner.

M. V. Dhurandharโ€™s painting of an idealised n**e depicts the body in a stylised manner that reflects his genius, posing the figure like a still-life amidst a landscaped bower, counterpoised against an unspooled saree and a glass bowl.
๐˜œ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ, 1934, Oil on canvas, 35.5 x 22.7 in.

Bikash Bhattacharjeeโ€™s work is a study of the female form rendered realistically. The photo-realism of the portrait is indicative of the art he practiced across his career, setting him apart from his peers.
๐˜œ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ (Seated N**e), 1972, Oil on canvas, 36.0 x 26.2 in.

F. N. Souzaโ€™s work was sometimes regarded as misogynistic but many of his n**es met the highest classical standards of beauty interpreted into modern art through his incisive brushstrokes of which this is such an excellent example.

Recognising the contribution of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for their contributions to the cityโ€™s vibrant art ecology, Artsy has chosen Natvar Bhavsar to represent Indian artists as part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

In the 1960s, Bhavsar arrived in New York City, where his approach gained recognition alongside other Abstract Expressionists like Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. His paintings shift freely from blocks of colour to organic bursts and layered compositions, revealing an instinctive understanding of tones, marking him out as a prominent colour field artist. No wonder he has been selected by Artsy to represent Indian art amidst other Asian-American artists.

We at DAG are delighted at this honour, having hosted his retrospective in Mumbai and included his work in important exhibitions and art fairs in India and across the world.

Madhvi Parekhโ€™s art is full of fables of childhoodsโ€”her own, and those she bequeathed her childrenโ€”born entirety of her imagination. They appear familiar, like memories, but there is, of course, no source for these stories, for they are enabled purely from her ability to bring together living and non-living objects on the same canvas as her way of creating an environment of sustainability as a way of life as she experienced it.

Her chronicles of village life are not so much about toil as about leisure, to play rather than to workโ€”manifestations of a happy childhood in which one was free to run or rest at will. Shown here is:

Some say there are two shortcuts to a Bengaliโ€™s heart: Rabindranath Tagoreโ€™s songs and Satyajit Rayโ€™s cinema.

In 1960, the legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray penned down the first draft of the script of Ghare Baire, one of his most ambitious adaptations of a novel by Rabindranath Tagore. But the story of this adaptation goes back more than a decade to 1948, when Harisadhan Dasgupta was originally meant to direct the film. Owing to ideological differences and conflicts the film got shelved. It was in 1984 that it was finally released, a beautiful tale of love, companionship, deceit and freedom against the backdrop of the nationalist movement.

On the 103rd birth anniversary of the great genius, Satyajit Ray, we take you behind the scenes of one of his most loved projects, as captured by Nemai Ghosh.

To know India is to explore its streetsโ€ฆits sights, smells and sounds. In the early 20th century, Indian artists viewed the village as the true locus for Indiaโ€™s identity, distinct from that of the British colonial cities of Calcutta, Bombay and Delhi. The evolution of Indian streets reflects a complex interplay of historical legacy, cultural influences, and empires like the Mauryan, Gupta and Mughal that left their imprint during different historical periods..

into the vibrant tapestry of 20th-century India as you stroll through the bustling streets of Agraโ€™s bazaars, Maduraiโ€™s temple alleys and the regal lanes of Lucknow. These streets, immortalized by Indian and traveling foreign artists alike, are more than just thoroughfares; theyโ€™re living portraits of Indiaโ€™s diverse communities, rich heritage, and enduring spirit. Each corner resonates with history, offering a glimpse into Indiaโ€™s intricate past and the dynamic fusion of cultures that define its essence.

Scenes of battles by artists are fascinating because they move between the real and the imagined. Since artists were never present at the events on these occasions, their visualisation was based on hearsay, storytelling and mythmaking, as well as the proclivities of the patron for whom these paintings were intended.

Take this painting with its visibly Indian landscape that provides the background for a fast-riding ruler leading a charge. Who is he? The rider immediately behind him wears the blue uniform of a French officer, so where did this battle occur?

While weโ€™re researching the historical veracity of the painting, we invite you to share your ideas and perspectives as comments. If you get the details right, weโ€™ll be sure to come right back to you.

When they first started coming to India in the 18th century, European artists were hardly prepared for the beauty of Kashmir. No matter how long they toured or stayed in India, the valleyโ€™s impact on their work was obvious. Soon enough, Indian artists from the art schools in Bombay and Calcutta began to paint just as well as their Western counterparts, heralding the golden age of landscape art in India.

Colonel George Strahan, a British army engineer who served in the Survey of India, would travel to Kashmir in summer for climbs. According to his memoir written by S.G. Burrard: โ€œ๐˜‰๐˜บ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ถ๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ค ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ.โ€ Shown here is ๐˜Ž๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ญ - ๐˜‹๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜“๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜’๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ณ, 1906, Watercolour on paper, 14.0 x 10.0 in.

Cecil Burnsโ€™s influence on Indian art has been greater than most artists realise.

F. N. Souza believed he was the best artist in the worldโ€”at least after Pablo Picassoโ€™s passingโ€”and that commemorates his birth centenary, one could do no better than look at the genres he excelled in. Even though he was a modernist par excellence, his choice of subjects remained classicist and traditional: theology (he loved and hated the church in equal measure), landscapes (that ranged from the frenzied to the calming), still-lifes (of which he was a master), n**es (created affectionately as well as confrontationally), and portraits or heads (of which his readings could range from the benign to the dystopian).

Pugnacious and outspoken, Souzaโ€™s art is a triumph of his genius. The most international of Indiaโ€™s 20th century artists, his pricesโ€”with auctions as an indicationโ€”have been soaring. On his centennial birth anniversary, DAG recalls an artist who made India and the entire global art community proud.

Indiaโ€™s most loved artist, Jamini Roy, born , is remembered for forging a unique Indian aesthetic through combining elements of traditional Bengali folk art and Kalighat patachitras, rendered in clean lines and earthy colours, with a modern language. Trained in European academic-realist painting at the Government School of Art, Calcutta, he began his career painting landscapes and portraits in the impressionistic style.

He painted a wide range of themesโ€”common people, mythological tales, Christian iconography, as well as visual characteristics of home-sewn Bengal quilts and Byzantine icons.

Declared a National Treasure artist in 1976, his home-studio was recently acquired by DAG to be turned into a single-artist museumโ€”a fitting tribute to Indiaโ€™s most recognised artist of the 20th century.

The picturesque kingdoms of Rajasthan began to welcome foreign tourists towards the second half of the nineteenth century. And travelling artists found royal cities like Udaipur and Jaipur the epitome of romantic India.

Japanese artist Hiroshi Yoshida was especially struck by the quality of light and strove to express it sincerely. This is what lends his works a rare luminosity, as evident in this Kokka woodblock print titled ๐˜ˆ๐˜ซ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜Ž๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ, ๐˜‘๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฑ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ. Awash with sunlight, it records elephants with their mahouts, itinerant merchants with their wares, and passersby crowding the fortโ€™s entrance.

And in his sun-washed oil, Danish artist Hugo Vilfred Pedersen shows his dexterity as a master colourist, rendering the temple in all its detail while succeeding in capturing the play of light and shadow on various elements of its architecture.

As for Marius Bauerโ€™s procession of elephants at the fortified entrance of Udaipurโ€™s palace complex, the dreamy scene captures all the exoticness that drew such artists to sights that remain as compelling today as they were at the time of his visit.
