Description

Mohan Samant (1924–2004), among the earliest of the post-Independence modern Indian artists to train in India and settle as a successful mature artist in the West, has been called “one of the few artists who has successfully made the bridge between Eastern and Western traditions.” Born in Mumbai, India, Samant received his diploma from the Sir JJ School of Art in 1952. That year he joined the Progressive Artists Group. Extended periods abroad—1957–58 in Rome and travel in Europe and Egypt, 1959–64 in New York City—preceded his leaving permanently for New York in 1968, where he lived until his death in 2004.

This volume, the definitive work on the artist, presents a comprehensive overview of Samant’s life and work, and includes essays on his place in the development of modernism in post-Independence India, a chronological survey of the styles, techniques, and themes employed by the artist and analyses of the media and techniques he utilized.

Published in association with Abraham Joel, New York, and Pundole Art Gallery, Mumbai.

“The comprehensive two-volume publication offers exploration of the artist’s styles and techniques, the themes and subjects in his paintings and his process — the latter examined through X-ray imaging of several of his works.”
