This volume provides a multidimensional overview of Akbar Padamsee’s career of over 54 years, and features numerous works which have appeared only in exhibition catalogues till now. Not only does this first volume of its kind describe the life and works of a pathbreaking artist, it also seeks to relocate Padamsee’s work in the present context, separating it from the large body of works collectively termed “modernist”. The book is illustrated with more than 370 images, paintings, sketches, watercolours, and photographs. The contributors include art historians, artists, critics, and collectors.
Bhanumati Padamsee has a postgraduate degree in the history of art from M.S. University, Baroda.
Annapurna Garimella is a designer and art historian who focuses on the art and architecture of India.
