Manchershaw Fakirjee Pithawala
Untitled (Parsi Lady) - 1906,
Oil on canvas,
24" x 18"
We would like to wish everyone Navroz Mubarak and dedicate our posts today to the Parsi community.
In this Untitled portrait of a high-born Parsi lady, the artist creates a right balance of reserve and dignity befitting someone of her station along with the requisite softness that suggests her well-bred qualities of polite amiability. The lady is dressed Parsi style in a full-sleeved, loose blouse made of patterned fabric, with the sari worn on the right shoulder and draped over the head. The delicate hand-embroidered black border of her soft blue chiffon sari matches the glint of pearls at her throat and the glittering diamond earring. Sequinned rows on the blouse and a medallion-like gold brooch complete the look of subdued wealth. With her hair swept up high and back, she fills the frame, looking out with the calm, clear-eyed authority of the head of a substantial household. The artist doesn’t paint her against any markers of family or wealth, save her own considerably bejewelled person, highlighting the air of well-bred but understated aristocracy.

Manchershaw Fakirjee Pithawala
Untitled (portrait of a parsi Gentleman) - 1934,
Oil on canvas
48" x 38.2"
M. F. Pithawalla was born in Surat’s Pitha village (hence the name) from where he moved to Bombay following his father’s demise in 1888, to make a living writing letters professionally. He was discovered and trained in art by John Griffiths, the principal of Sir J. J. School of Art. Following the success of his first showing at the Bombay Fine Arts exhibition where he was awarded a silver medal and a cash prize by the Bombay Art Society, he began exhibiting widely at shows in Simla, Bombay, Darjeeling, Madras and Poona, at which he won several awards. Pithawalla left for Europe in 1911 and while there, he was able to impress with his talent in portraiture, so much so that he was soon considered equal to some of the leading portrait artists of the time in Britain. His style is also remembered by the album he was commissioned to make for Queen Mary on her Indian visit, containing water colour impressions of women from different Indian communities, indicating their characteristic mannerisms and dressing styles.

#Retrospective

Altaf Mohammedi
Portrait of an aging couple
1998,
Oil on canvas,
60" x 48"
Altaf’s portraits from the nineties are intended to draw a picture of humanity and its ills, and he picked everything from the carnage wrought by the mobs to incidents of violence and death, exploring relationships and the decaying fabric of social life made vulnerable by the times he lived in.

The Exhibition will be open for viewings 19th August onwards at DAG Modern, Kala Ghoda Mumbai. For inquiries please email:

#Retrospective
Altaf Mohammedi (1942 – 2005)
Altaf chose to align himself to a Marxist political ideology in which he was completely invested. He refused to consider his visual practise from a perspective based on aesthetics alone, instead preferring the more deeply thought and arising from a level of intellectualism rare in Indian art at the time. This retrospective is a reflection of that. Altaf’s works are surprisingly strong and evocative of his belief in the politics of power and corruption, the marginalistaion of proletariat, and are haunted by spectre of death.

The Exhibition will be open for viewings 19th August onwards at DAG Modern, Kala Ghoda Mumbai. For inquiries please email:

Altaf Mohammedi
Untitled,
Oil on canvas,
48" x 36"
Younger brother of the abstractionist Nasreen Mohamedi - Altaf, was a modernist painter active from the 1970s-90s.
Affiliated with the Left, he came to be strongly involved in social activism while his own art explored themes of death and human frailty. DAG Modern is pleased to present the first-ever retrospective of this significant artist.
Well read and articulate, Altaf struggled to explain the place terror had found in modern life and its causes, but even more so the reason for hatred and the lust for bloodletting.
In attempting to capture its horror in its paintings, he was exorcising his own concerns.

The Exhibition will be open for viewings 19th August onwards. For inquiries please email:

J Sultan Ali

NS Bendre
Sinhalese Lady - 1967,
Oil on canvas,
24 in. x 24 in.
NS Bendre paints from memory – a scene, a setting or a subject, and he paints from the point of view of a painter. This portrait of a woman could be of an acquaintance or someone Bendre came across. But he renders it with such beauty and grace that the viewer ends up drawing a parallel between his own experience and the thoughts aroused by the work.

HA Gade
Houses - 1964,
Oil on canvas, 40 in. x 40 in.
Reality is given a twist in Gade’s abstract paintings by means of an unusual angle of looking at houses. This method, assisted by perplexing colour-schemes, gives his paintings a dreamy quality and turns his landscapes into fairytale illustrations.
