There is an interesting format this time, with three consecutive auctions, all within one day, one after the other. The day shall begin with an assortment of collectibles in the first part of the auction, moving on to Folk & Tribal art in the second half and finally putting forth art works by well known Masters and talented Contemporaries. With Mr Amanpreet Singh continuing as consultant, we have put together a large variety of collectibles and art works, most of which would be on display during the auction at The Claridges, who are supporting us as hospitality partners. The collectibles’ section shall offer some rare and interesting pieces, superbly crafted stoneware like the Satsuma vases, lamps, old books, posters / lobby cards of old films, unique candle sticks, artefacts, bronzes and crystal wares. These stunning pieces are sure to transport you to a different era.

There are canvases and paper works by the Other Masters like Jangarh Sing Shyam and Baua Devi, vivid and exorbitant, executed with exemplary minuteness, and then, there are sculptures that stand out with their native intensity. The third part of the auction shall bring forth a more familiar array of names, of the modern masters. M F Husain, V S Gaitonde, Ramkumar, B Prabha, Paresh Maity, Vivan Sundaram, Sanjay Bhattacharya and the likes shall go under the hammer at fetching prices in the third of the three auctions set to be held this April.

The patas of Chotanagpur plateau developed as a variant of the patachitras named ‘Chakshudan Pata’ or ‘Jadu Pata’. In the event of the death of someone in the nearby village or pargana, the patuas draw a portrait of the dead . They charge a fee from the relatives of the dead to add eyes in the portrait. People believe that the departed soul would find the way to Heaven through that pair of eyes painted for them by the ‘Jadu pata’. The tradition, still followed in the area, is slowly fading with time and modernism. These patachitras were painted mainly following the Vaishnav school of art.

An itinerant class of folk painters, the Jadu patuas, developed a close association with life and culture of the Santhals due to a long period of interaction between the two communities. This inter relationship has produced an entire art genre – assimilation of elements from the cultures of both. Jadupatua scrolls show great varieties of expression and treatment. The depictions are usually of the tribe and its customs, rituals and celebrations. Women who normally wear white are shown in flaming red; their chocolate complexions changed to white or yellow. All pigments are traditionally derived from natural sources, although, store-bought paints have also become popular now due to their accessibility in the local markets. What brings these works of visual artistry into the realm of ritual are the songs that accompany the scrolls. In this context, the paintings are an element of performance art, whence their story is sung out along with the un-scrolling of the pata.

The Saura paintings are simple in technique yet complex in symbolism. Uncomplicated in layout yet profound in purpose, they hold immense functional and social significance. The art of Sauras draws inspiration from their spiritual and religious beliefs. They believe strongly in gods, ghosts and spirits of nature and of their ancestors. These unseen beings are regarded as presiding forces over the various aspects of life, each with its sphere of influence. The spaces in the paintings serve as temporary dwellings for the spirits in the living world. The paintings function as a means of worship and a medium of invocation. Painting an icon is an act of ritual divination, the wall on which a painting is to be drawn is washed with fresh red earth and water to provide a good background. The painter uses a twig slightly splayed at the end. The major pigment for the Saura icons is white, which is obtained either from rice, ash, chalk or lime mixed with water. At times he gives emphasis to his figures with lampblack, red ochre, indigo blue, and yellow. In recent times their art is no longer restricted to the ritualistic but also to the artistic imagination of the people creating similar artworks on canvas or cloth.

The Pinguli Chitragathis have had an unfaltering style for ages; its main features are depictions of battle scenes or prominent scenes from various Indian epics. Chitragathi is an innovative audio-visual medium where the artist holds a hand-made paper painting depicting scenes from the epics of Ramayana, Mahabharata or Nandi Puran etc. Every painting is displayed with vivid narratives by the Chitrakar who modulates his voice to create drama and is backed by other vocalists and musical instruments which add life to the paintings’ narrative. The paintings invariably have bold and flat colour areas bound by a uniform line. They seem to have taken some inspiration from the traditional leather puppets and their imagery are interestingly painted on both the sides.

Kalam creates or rather re-creates the traditional Kalighat painting, a genre that evolved as popular bazaar art in the 19th century Kolkata and then slowly vanished before the Independence. His paintings, like the original Kalighat themes, are also often, based on social observation and a satirical take on contemporary themes. The subjects are both contemporary and traditional, the original genre poking fun at the westernised Bengali, or a current contemporary setting. He also re-constructs imagery borrowed directly from the paintings he has observed, including religious themes.

Patachitras are the folk paintings of Orissa with a long history, traditionally made over a piece of cloth known as Pata or a dried palm leaf. Pata-chitra is a combination of two words ‘Patta’ meaning canvas or cloth or screen or veil and ‘chitra’ meaning picture. So Pattachitra means painting on cloth. The process begins with creating a surface for the painting. A gummy paste of boiled tamarind seeds and soft granite powder is plastered on a stretched piece of cloth. Once dry, the outlines of the painting are sketched with charcoal or limestone. Decorative motifs like borders and geometric forms are drawn. The soot of oil lamps serves for black and diluted lime for white. The leaves of plants, flower petals, fruits, rocks and even the urine of domesticated animals are used for colour. Recently, artists have begun using chemical dyes and paints as well. The subjects of the paintings are usually intricate and detailed traditional forms of various Gods, Goddesses, ornamentation of flowers, trees and animals etc. Patachitra painting of Raghurajpur has now become an internationally renowned art form.

Whatever the technique, Jangarh Singh Shyam’s compositions stay strong with a binding force that holds the viewer’s gaze, encouraging her to look deeper in. The forms take shape spontaneously in space. The Gond deities painted by Jangarh Singh Shyam stand apart in their simplicity which is attained by intricate network of parallel and consecutive lines brilliantly placed in a sort of momentum -- various figurations with an overall effect of dynamic movement, enhanced by outward concentric lines. In this work, he has not used traditional materials but a pen on paper to depict a very elaborate design.

Venkat Shyam started sketching when he was seven years old. Scraps of paper, blank spaces on the walls were all covered with his charcoal drawings. In 1983,Venkat’s uncle, Jangarh Singh Shyam, happened to notice the drawing of Shridi Saibaba on the wall and the sketches of houses and insects in the margins of the newspaper that Venkat had made. He immediately recognised the talent before him. He asked Venkat to come to Bhopal to paint. Venkat works in the conventional Gond style of painting and explores both cultural and abstract themes. He feels an artist must add something of himself to time honoured themes. His works are very contemporary in treatment, although the style and spirit remains indigenous.

He was greatly influenced by the murals of the Ajanta Caves and the Tagore family. The style of Nandlal’s paintings reflects the historic artistic tradition as well as the contemporary practices of Indian art form. Nandalal also imbibed the wash technique used by Japanese artists. This gave rise to a series of wash paintings that transformed the simple objects of everyday life into tools of powerful artistic expression. It was a culmination of the classical with the rural, the classical with the coarse, and the homely with the technical that gave his art its great composure and fundamental directness.

After his initial years of painting in an impressionistic western style, Jamini Roy adopted simplification of forms, bold, flat colours and indigenous medium, material and themes inspired by traditional folk paintings. He sought further inspiration from religious epics like the Ramayana and Krishna Lila and also portrayed scenes from the Bible (Last Supper, Christ) repeatedly. He painted men and women from the village, reinventing popular images from the patua’s repertoire. Village women in sitting, standing or dancing gesture -- solo or in groups -- were one of his favourite subjects. He painted them in a variety of colours and postures throughout. Roy brought the sensibilities of a trained artist to his appropriation of folk idiom. The use of folk idioms manifested in various ways. He created a lot of animal figures, especially horses that were representations or visuals of toys or puppets. The asceticism of his bold lines displays Roy’s superb control over the brush: the lines drawn lyrically and sensuously bring forth the poetry of the underlying sophisticated form. Jamini Roy restricted his palette to seven colours - Indian red, yellow ochre, cadmium green, vermillion, grey, blue and white. These were mostly earthy or mineral colours. Spring Auction 2015 072

Manishi Dey was part of the Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group. His style was primarily traditional in treatment and expression, and yet, he gave the work a distinct character. By enhancing effects with line, form, plane and colour, he gently metamorphosed the softer wash styles and techniques creating bolder textures, striking imagery, imagined and created spontaneity. Dey did a lot of portraits with red-and-orange hues.

Sailoz pursued an inner creative journey exuding a sense of joy in his expressionism, focusing on the lyrical nature of line and an outburst of warm colours. The simplification of form and vibrancy were derived from his years in Europe and inspiration from works of Matisse but his main influences were folk art and Basohli miniatures. He focused on themes such as oneness with nature and rural serenity. Sailoz is one of the early modernists who showed a flair for simplification of forms, vigorous lines and dynamic movement.

Pyne was an important, imaginative painter of his time with an uncanny story telling quality in his work. His works typically inquire themes of Bengali folklore and mythology. Pyne started working with water colour in the Bengal school style and gradually shifted to gouache and then to tempera, barring his stint with illustrations for children’s books early on. His paintings are often multi-layered where shadow and light seem to create dreamy illusions. He was also known as a “painter of darkness”, for using dark colours like ochre, black, brown and blue and motifs often suggesting death, pain and loneliness.

The idea of demons and strange creatures come multiple times in his works as also do the manifestation of myths. Similar imaginary form comes alive in this enticing work in subtle deep shades with multi layers of colour and a crisscross of lines to further enrich the texture of the work -- the painting becomes more surreal than real. He worked in various media including drawings on diary pages, pastels, oil and water colour.

Ram Kumar who was part of the Progressive Artists’ Group is a pioneer abstract artist. His paintings are aesthetic representations of juxtaposition of forms and sentiments. His visual language is akin to an aerial view of a landscape from a high vantage point. The multi hued geographic scapes are harmoniously placed in perspective. Land and water, at each others’ edges, in a synchronistic tranquil concurrence of colour and linear forms with misty blurring boundaries, stokes of colours, blues, yellows and whites, sometimes pleasant pastels, other times, dark hues demarcating spaces, manifesting sensuousness and beauty of nature, stippling and studding of textures across the painted surfaces, form his visual language.

The rivers, ghats, lanes manifest the imaginary or real landscapes of the holy city of Varanasi, get often times translated into outlines set against swathes of coloured planes. Increasingly abstract landscapes, done in sweeping strokes of paint, evoke both exultation of natural spaces and cityscapes; though empty of human presence, they resonate with the collective spiritual experience. One may observe an abundance of triangular forms which maybe purely representational or also passive symbols of the spiritual. The mood of each painting is distinct; sometimes it is vibrant at others, sombre and sublime.

Sen’s drawings and paintings are noted for their strong lines and bold, stylised strokes. Vivacious colour is also an important feature in his paintings, along with voluminous figures, expressing countless emotions. A recurrent subject in Sen’s works is depiction of scenes from everyday urban life with bold, vigorous strokes, a touch of humour /satire notwithstanding, layered in cleverly. He has always depicted human figures in strong, sensuous colours. Paritosh Sen met Pablo Picasso in the 1950s. The master spent five hours with him, and the meeting left a deep and lasting impression on Sen. “Picasso’s works and methods taught me more than what I was prepared for and it took me some time to assimilate the concepts and integrate them with my own work,” he recalled. Sen met Picasso at his studio in Rue des Grands Augustins, having left the subcontinent to study art in various art colleges in Paris. The influence and recollection of that meeting is the subject of this typical colourful creation of the master.

He drew his inspiration from the folk and primitive art, be it Egyptian, Indian, Mexican, Incan etc. He could work entirely within the Indian tradition with as much ease and consummate skill as he could adapt the mores of some Western Masters. Kulkarni was well versed in India’s cultural lore, its mythology, its epic, its legends, as well as its hoary art forms. Added to that was his initiation in western art and its aesthetics. This amalgam was a heady mix that enlivened his sensibility, especially in his drawings which are crisp in timbre and most palatable. Kulkarni pursued absolute abstraction at one moment, at others, turning symbols and signs with weighty meanings. At the same time, his figuration was vigorous, or else sweet, such as in his delineation of Lord Krishna

Dasgupta painted landscapes that gave full rein to his penchant for nature and its fanciful shapes and colours. He shifted slowly from realistic images to abstraction. He used textural changes and sharply defined colour schemes to make his canvases come alive with shifting shapes and barely visible forms. He used a lot of merging of browns, greys and blacks; although the hues are sombre, hints of bright yellows and reds illuminat the whole composition revealing the strong underlying emotions.

Husain was one of the original members of the Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group founded by F. N. Souza. A true modern master, he was often called the Picasso of India. Themes in Husain’s work have been largely cultural; he embraced various influences -- folk, tribal and mythological-to create a vibrantly contemporary body of works. The essence of Indian culture was deeply imbibed into his artistic iconography. Husain had a certain passion for horses. He has created a lot of works with horse as the central theme --the influences are multiple culturally, as is evident in his oeuvre, Duldul, the horse of Imam Husain at the battle of Karbala. We also see a lot of influence of the Mahabharata & the Ramayana in his various works. It is perhaps the artist’s iconic horses that most effectively illuminate the amalgamation of personal and public, historic and contemporary, national and international that his oeuvre will always represent.

Santosh was greatly influenced by geometric shapes and the mysticism of the Kashmir valley. He developed an inclination towards cubism and began creating cubist landscapes. Later, inspired by the Tantra philosophy that he studied, Santosh started working with geometrical representations of the male and female forms and his subjects came to be dominated by the concept of ShivShakti.

B. Prabha was an important Indian artist who worked mainly in oils, in her particular distinguished style. She is best known for graceful elongated figures of distant and preoccupied rural women. She started working at a time when India had few women artists; her inspiration was Amrita Shergil. Prabha was moved by the lives of rural women, and they became the perennial theme of her work. The artist continually explored an array of related subjects alluding to society, identity and gender equality.

Yellows and browns can be seen merging and sub merging to define the contours of the forms in Arup’s work. Human figures occupy a vital position in his paintings. Das chooses to represent man as a social being, placed within the framework of his cultural and natural environment. He is as comfortable painting with oils as he is with watercolours. He is at his productive and innovative best when he is working with a combination of media. He employs a wide variety of shades to depict his expressive human figures in serene sepia landscapes.

[b] Vaikuntam’s art has a power that emanates from the strong and vivid colours that he uses in his compositions. His bold style has developed to a point of being instantly recognisable and is widely appreciated for its novelty of form and expertise of composition. He usually works with primary colours to depict elaborately dressed voluptuous, dusky skinned women from the Telangana region. His brush strokes provide detailed presentation of vermillion, bindis and bright Sircilla saris. He says, “I like using rich primary colours which give a sense of character and depth to my paintings. Like reds and saffron and even orange, because these are essentially Indian colours. I don’t like using colours that are mix of two, because they are not natural, they don’t exist in surroundings around us, in our everyday life”.

The paintings focus a lot on middle-class homes and areas of Kolkata with exquisite detail and light and shade. They hint about the drama which revolves around people’s lives. His landscapes too have a similar treatment. “They are of great interest to me. They tell me stories of people who lived there, who loved there, or fought there. There is a lot of colour and texture in their decaying walls, if only we took the trouble of seeing them.” In some of his works, we find mysterious rooms with old styled table, dressing table, chairs, bedstead with ornately carved head-boards or old utensils. It’s not just empty houses that Sanjay paints; he also portrays the rural landscapes. The lotus pond here with pink flowers in full bloom in a lake by the village country-side -- a mesmerizing landscape, like the many scenic gems of Kolkata that he has painted -- appeals to the visual sense as much as it stirs the viewer emotionally.

She drowns when a jealous sister-in-law replaces the pot with a flawed one.

Akbar Padamsee’s metascapes pulsate with throbbing energy, a living quality. The relationship between form, volume, space, time and colour is spell binding and magnanimous. Every brush stroke acutely articulates this relationship as his process of creation is one of deliberation and intrinsic thought. Padamsee experiments with a wide range of mediums, oils, watercolours, acrylic, photography and digital printmaking & sculpture. The most prominent works from his wide oeuvre however are the metascapes, advancement from the landscapes. His themes are powerful and uncanny, stir the viewer emotionally; the strong colours combine to give the paintings the quality of a chimera in spite of the inculcation of warm oranges and reds. “A tension between colour and colour creates planar movement; absence of the complementary creates expectation leading the mind into a quest of the imagination.” -Akbar Padamsee: Retrospective Art Heritage 1980-81; Text Eunice de Souza.

Jayasri Burman’ s oeuvre is inspired by Hindu traditions and mythology, her style stimulated by folk elements. The imagery in her work has a dream-like lyrical quality, giving the works a unique sensitivity. She weaves decorative design elements of folk expression into the intricate patterns of her works, with a visual language that is uniquely her own. Although inspired by the Indian folk tradition, her art evokes a refreshing quality of charm and honesty to give a more contemporary feel. She manages very successfully to weave the decorative and design elements of the folk idiom into the intricate

patterns of her canvas without losing the natural charm and naiveté of her work, which is uniquely her own. Her concern for women is evident in her work. Free spirited and at peace, her woman is close to nature. Jayasri’s work reinterprets lush green environs, tranquil cyan water bodies and the hybridized imagery of a woman who, herself is bird-like in her grace and form, often surrounded by birds and elegant swans, like in the present painting. A mystical softness brought out with water colours in red, blue & radiant saffron. The serene transience and mutability of landscape establishes a benevolent space, like a mystical garden.

Reddy’ s work radiates nearly unsettling realism. His compositions often comprise myriad strokes of subdued hues, forming figures that are realistic with strong expressions. A figurative painter, most of Reddy’s figures echo mood rather than meaning: very real in expression with a rawness of form. Reddy’s paintings have as a subject a sitting or reclining figure staring beyond, echoing a strange mood that manifests through expressions and the strong lines with merging colours within the bifurcated faces become his signature style. With limited lines and means, he manages to create effects and moods, creating a mysterious ambience. “There are some artists who believe in the intrinsic worth of formal delineation to such a degree that, that itself becomes their crucial premise.” - Ramanand Naidu

Deeply affected by socio-political issues, the artist is known for his realistic representations of public life and angst. In an attempt to discover a new medium to express his artistic language, he chose tarpaulin as his surface. Thomas was deeply perturbed by the daily politics of the country, which he felt led to unnecessary suffering and turmoil, particularly for the innocent masses. He depicts his anguish and beliefs and numerous socio-political issues through his work. He paints child labourers and new born babies coming from hostile circumstances whom he calls ‘survivors’, and depicts them celebrating their lives. His works often imbibe a gentle touch of humour. Most of his works comprise recurring motifs like animals, fish, flowers, choppers -- scattered within the canvas, cocooning the protagonist/s. His more recent paintings include images of children rescued from forced labour, and babies living in destitute conditions.
