The link between these two men of such diverse backgrounds was a passion for art and in almost equal measure, for Urdu poetry.
For a period of over 20 years up to the mid 1960’s, Krishen Khanna and M. F. Husain exhibited together in a spirit of warm camaraderie. This despite the physical distance. While Krishen lived in Madras, Kanpur and New Delhi while Husain lived all over. During visits to Delhi, the two would go on sketching expeditions to the old Delhi railway station. ‘We would have tea at a small teashop called Victoria and found our models just sitting around. We drew refugees, their bundles and kettles. People in transit, in moments of unsettled rest’. A delightful photograph captures their friendship.

Rabin Mondal
King as Christ, 1976
Oil on canvas
55.5 x 55.5 in.

The Shanghai Biennale - 'Why Not Ask Again' 2016 featured the 'King Series' by Indian artist Rabin Mondal which was a matter of great pride to the Indian art community.

In this painting, Rabin Mondal sets into motion the wheel of time itself. While a residual reference to the floor exists as a link to the other paintings, the allusion to Christ is a clever juxtaposition. For the first time, one questions the king’s role in the series. Is he necessarily evil? Has the power been thrust on him? Did he have a choice in the bargain he made? Is he the sacrificial lamb instead of someone deciding on the sacrifices that are required? Is he being crucified for events not in his control? This pause, and dilemma, is unusual for Rabin Mondal who tends to cauterise the public from figures of authority. In creating a sense of motion with the wheel, he hints that this is a cyclical phenomenon eroding the superficial surface of the social mask worn by those in power. The primal sense of malevolence that imbues this series finds some relief in this painting where the artist’s hesitation creates a sense of dissonance instead.

Rabin Mondal
King and his Assasin, 1976
Oil on canvas 
56.0 x 56.0 in.

The Shanghai Biennale 'Why Not Ask Again' 2016 curated by Raqs Media Collective - featured the 'King Series' by Indian artist Rabin Mondal which was a matter of great pride to the Indian art community.
The 1970s was a period when Rabin Mondal felt a sense of despair in the manner with which society was being inveigled by people in positions of authority. Mondal took to introspecting on it which led to the origin of his 'King Series'
Like in these paintings, the craving for power builds a chasm of suspicion that borders on the paranoid. The chamber of authority is evoked through the presence of a carved chair or throne, with the crossed swords and shield that suggest the dominion of monarchical autocracy. Behind the wall, the lurking figure of an assassin lends a pungent dimension to the setting. Is this a hired murderer or merely the successor-in-waiting waging his claim to the throne?
The king, meanwhile, fearful for his life, occupies a parallel space shorn of all dignity of office. His naked vulnerability is visible to everyone but him.

Untitled (Banares Ghaats)
Tempera on cardboard,
11.2 in. x 7.7 inches
Jamini Roy played around with a diverse range of resources which is well documented. Yet, what is of interest to us is the influence of Byzantine mosaics that led him to adopt a language of short brushstrokes for a brief period in his life.
Colour that would mix optically in the viewer’s eye through the juxtaposition of pure hues was a characteristic of the French impressionist movement, but Jamini Roy drew upon this to paint landscapes that were optically intense and markedly different from what was being produced at the time.

Padma Bhushan awardee - artist Jamini Roy was one of the most famous pupils of Abanindranath Tagore, whose artistic originality and contribution to the emergence of modern art in India remains unquestionable.

Jamini Roy

Untitled,
Tempera on cardboard,
15.7 in. x 12 in.

Today we look at Jamini Roy’s landscapes that are the best examples of post-Impressionism. Having acquired sufficient skills in the European academic-realist mode at the Government College of Art & Craft, Calcutta, Jamini Roy began his artistic career painting landscapes and portraits. Roy later moved away from these and began to experiment with a more indigenous visual vocabulary and is today known for forming an art language which was influenced by patua artists from the Kalighat region.
