SATISH GUJRAL

Photo credit: OutlookIndia
At the age of eight, while on a holiday in Pahalgam (Kashmir) young Gujral fell into a river and injured his leg severely which resulted in him being bed ridden for almost 2 years. After undergoing a series of operations they resulted in him going deaf as well.
His father was seriously concerned about his education and at school, with hardly any friends, young Gujral soon grew disheartened. His father tried to cheer him up by getting him books of Abdul Rahman Chugtai's paintings set to Ghalib's verse. Chugtai was a superstar among artists, with his own printing press where he printed books of his paintings. "If he can make it, so can you," my father told me. I decided soon after that to join Chugtai as an assistant, one of four or five other students. I became determined after this that I would become a painter.

SATISH GUJRAL
Untitled
1974
Copper, aluminium, steel, tin and wood
46.0 in. x 46.0 in.
A modernist of the generation of Bombay progressives, Satish Gujral has been a ceaselessly inventive artist. Born (1925) in Jhelum, in undivided India Satish Gujral is our artist in focus today.

The work is utterly imposing in its presence, the large sculpture depicts a devi. She is a totemic, square-blocked form, from her shoulders and along her sides and arms. Her eyes are made of two circular objects, recalling discarded industrial suction pads. Gujral’s nod to tantra comes through the prominent attention given to her two pointed breasts, the arresting centre of her form made of projecting metal prisms, and her sacred yoni rendered with the hexagon formed of the union of the male and female principles.

Hemendranath Majumdar

A Dry Feast,
Watercolour and Gouache on Whatman board
15.7 in. x 22.7 in.

Rejecting the Bengal school mannerisms in favour of Eurpoean classical realism, Hemendranath Majumdar was known for the rich evocation of details – for instance, the folds of the red curtain, the shading of the cats’ fur, the freshly mixed paint on the palette – in this oil painting . Four cats hover over a painted canvas surrounded by paint brushes and a palette, suggesting the artist at work. Starting with a depiction of lobsters, majumdar later chose to portray a spontaneous, playful moment of the cats jumping over his highly realistic still life.

A H Muller
Untitled,
Oil on board
21 in. x 39 in.

A graduate from the Government College of Arts and Crafts in Madras, Archibald Herman Muller was born in Cochin, Kerala.
After completing his studies, he joined his brother’s photography studio. Muller’s shift to Bombay in 1910 proved to be lucky for it was here that his art flourished and he gradually came to occupy a special niche in the art scene of the early twentieth century.

Our subject today being animals in art, we bring a work in focus by Muller that captures the magnificence of a tiger - truly king of the jungle.

Sunil Das
Horses , 1958
Pastel on Sand Paper
14 in. x 18 in.

Today we focus on animals as a theme used by artists to create works highlighting their innate beauty. Sometimes rendered playfully, sometimes as symbols of power and, at times, as accompanying the main subject, animals have always been an important theme in artworks. 
Horses and bulls in motion have been Sunil Das’s signature themes, drawing on his earliest observation of the horses at Calcutta’s racetracks and the bulls in Spain. In this pastel work, the artist captures calmness and a more domesticated aspect of the animal in comparison to his sketches and paintings that valourised animal speed and muscular power.
