|Jogen Chowdhury, Untitled. Ink and pastel on paper|
Also included in the catalogue is a 1962 painting by V.S. Gaitonde, underlining the artist’s almost ascetic practice, and an untitled 1993 charcoal drawing of a falling figure by Tyeb Mehta. Amongst the lots by Akbar Padamsee are two rare mixed-media portraits from the 1950s, reminiscent of his early, highly sought after ‘Prophet’ series of paintings. Other highlights include an early charcoal rendering of Banaras by Ram Kumar, a study for Krishen Khanna’s seminal painting ‘The Game II’, and two meticulous pencil drawings by Nasreen Mohamedi.
