Biography & autobiography

Krishen Khanna's work is placed in its biographical,historical and social context through the examination of several of his paintings among which are Flagellation and a series of bandwallahs (musicians) in the 1970s. The book combines Krishen Khanna's monograph with the discussion of the socio-political context which motivated a generation of Indian artists. Khanna's style is discussed by Norbert Lynton the artist dabbled in abstraction but returned to representational art as a member of the Progressive Artists' Group. The depiction of the musicians has motivated two writers Gayatri Sinha and Marilyn Rushton to look at Khanna's work in relation to the theme of music. Essays by Krishen Khanna, Gayatri Sinha, Ranjit Hoskote, Marilyn Rushton and Tanuj Berry. Published in association with Lund Humphries.
