Book Description

In this book Krishen Khanna's style is discussed by Norbert Lynton - the artist dabbled in abstraction but returned to representational art as a member of the Progressive Artists' Group. This was a brief movement practised by artists striving towards modernity and challenged India's caste-driven structure. The artists' work is placed in its biographical, historical and social context through the examination of several of his paintings among which are Flagellation and a series of bandwallahs (musicians) in the 1970s. The depiction of musicians has motivated two writers - Gayatri Sinha and Marilyn Ruston - to look at Khanna's work in relation to the theme of music. This book is the first o combine an Indian artist's monograph with the discussion of the socio-political context which motivated a generation of Indian artists.
