Ganesh Pyne (11 June 1937 - 12 March 2013), one of the foremost exponents of the Bengal School of Art, passed away in Kolkata.
Pyne, who lived through the communal riots of 1946 in Kolkata, developed a style that conveyed his experiences of pain, solitude, alienation and horror. He blended these negative emotions with Romanticism, fantasy and an inventive play of light and darkness to create his signature style for which he is respected worldwide. On the sad occasion of his demise we remember him and pay him tribute through his works.
An exhibition of Ganesh Pyne's works will be displayed
at Vadehra Art Gallery in honour of the artist.
