Description

Mohan Samant (1924–2004), among the earliest of the post-Independence modern Indian artists to train in India and settle as a successful mature artist in the West, has been called “one of the few artists who has successfully made the bridge between Eastern and Western traditions.” Born in Mumbai, India, Samant received his diploma from the Sir JJ School of Art in 1952. Extended periods abroad—1957–58 in Rome and travel in Europe and Egypt, 1959–64 in New York City—preceded his leaving permanently for New York in 1968, where he lived until his death in 2004.
 
The Paintings volume, the definitive work on the artist, presents a comprehensive overview of Samant’s life and work, and includes essays on his place in the development of modernism in post-Independence India, a chronological survey of the styles, techniques, and themes employed by the artist and analyses of the media and techniques he utilized. The volume on his erotic sketches displays Samant’s work about which he had said, “The intense, painful, internal striving process of creation in art reaches outward to culminate in forms known or unknown. This condition could be erotic and...given the motor power of a great visionary artist, it could create a Mahakali in person.” 
 
Published in association with Abraham Joel, New York, and Pundole Art Gallery, Mumbai.
