‘The Bindu’ by SH Raza, ‘Bandwallas’ by Krishen Khanna, ‘Diwali’ by Nandalal Bose and famed works of MF Hussain on Hindu epic Ramayana will be a number of the many masterpieces exhibited at the upcoming art exhibition, “The World Will Go On”, starting Monday.
The 11-day exhibition, which celebrates India’s unique visual language of pre-modern and contemporary art, also features infrequent paintings from the 19th century by unknown masters alongside important works by greats like MV Dhurandhar, Ravi Varma School, Jehangir Sabavala, J. Swaminathan and others. It’s going to be held here at DAG, The Claridges.
“Ever since the start of the pandemic early this year, we have experienced quite a lot of moods and sentiments, but the overwhelming one has been of the gift of life and the overwhelming opportunities we have been provided to understand how blessed each and every one of us is.
“In putting together this exhibition and sale, we have chosen each and every work of art to express the gratefulness we feel in all that we’ve got, or have been provided, and to take cognizance of how beautiful the world is, how privileged we are,” said Ashish Anand, DAG CEO and MD, DAG.
Including prints, paintings and sculptures, the exhibition-sale will have 88 sets featuring 127 works of fine art. Leading the sale will be two series on Hindu mythology Ramayana— the first, a set of accomplished prints by the artist Chittaprosad, and the other a total set of watercolour paintings by Laxman Pai.
“Each exhibition has a reason and is curated with a purpose. Provided the current situation, this exhibition has even more relevance and is a very powerful step for artists and those connected with the world of art,” said artist Gogi Saroj Pal, whose works are also a part of the upcoming exhibition.
It’s going to also have famed artistic endeavors by the likes of husband-wife duo Manu Parekh and Madhvi Parekh, KS Radhakrishnan, Natvar Bhavsar and Paramjit Singh, among others.
