The Curious Seeker is a retrospective on the artist Madhvi Parekh, comprising works that represent each phase of her five-decade career and highlighting such things as her roots in folk tradition and the influence of the Swiss German artist Paul Klee on her early work. The book, published by Delhi Art Gallery (DAG) Modern, contextualises and traces the evolution of her work which are part of the retrospective.
Hailing from a small village in Gujarat, Parekh was introduced to Western artists by her husband, the artist Manu Parekh. 
A self-taught artist, Madhvi started painting in 1964, inspired by the rich folk traditions of picture making in Gujarat. Over the years, she grew out of the constraints of the folk conventions, yet sticking to the traditional flat surface and the pictorial significance of the decorative elements. Her use of oil and acrylic on canvas and watercolour on paper, a decisive shift from the traditional materials and surface of the folk painters, stimulated and broadened her artistic imagination, and the initial naive charm of her paintings matured and became loaded with her statements on women, girl child, and encounters between the rural and urban India.

It’s been a while since I have hovered around this space. Life has been all consuming with deadlines for our upcoming auction in March. Sadly I missed the Dhaka Art Summit but did manage to make a dash to Delhi and Mumbai to catch the India Art Fair, the KNMA show and our own Christie’s preview in Delhi. Mumbai was not to be missed with Mithu’s solo at Chemould and the CSMVS show by Sabyasachi. It was quite a line up of heavy hitters that were not to be missed.
The exhibitions that were really show stoppers for me were the Anju Dodiya solo at the Bikaner House, the Dhanraj Bhagat show at the NGMA, the textile show at the Crafts Museum, the DAG show of the nine national treasures and the Bala solo at Talwar Gallery. In Mumbai, it was of course Mithu Sen - in a league of her own!
Back in NYC - enjoying the last bits of snow awaiting tulips.

Repost of this fantastic photo of M.F Husain from @discoverdag who have the largest repository of Indian Modern Art in the world and are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. The Progressive Artist's Group, PAG, was a group of artists, mainly based in Bombay.The Progressive Artist's Group was formed by six founder members, F. N. Souza, S. H. Raza, M. F. Husain, K. H. Ara, H. A. Gade, and S. K. Bakre (the only sculptor in the group).
The group wished to break with the revivalist nationalism established by the Bengal school of art and to encourage an Indian avant-garde, engaged at an international level. The Group was formed just months after the 14 August, 1947 "Partition of India" and Pakistan that resulted in religious rioting and death of tens of thousands of people displaced by the new borders. The founders of the Progressive Artists Group often cite "the partition" as impetus for their desire for new standards in India, starting with their new style of art.
European Modernism was the most distinctive influence on the group, but its members worked in dramatically different styles, from the Expressionism of Souza to the pure abstraction of Gaitonde. Specific Indian imagery and landscapes were also adopted, particularly by Mehta and Husain. Through the incorporation and mixture of new, abstract styles with traditional Indian art elements and Media, the PAG is one of the most influential art movements in India until today. .
