Ramachandran, A Retrospective

in Two volumes


 A Ramachandran, one of our most distinguished artists, has ceaselessly experimented with visual language for more than 40 years. Painter, sculptor, graphic artist and designer, Ramachandran's vision and style has changed from sombre expressionism to lyrical and metaphysical engagement with nature. In the process, the artist has explored diverse scale and mediums.

On the occasion of a retrospective mounted at the National Gallery of Modern Art showcasing the works done throughout these decades, a rare view of Ramachandran in the totality of his oeuvre is being published.

Written by Prof. R. Siva Kumar, the book, a set of two volumes, is a well-analysed, incisive study of the life and works of the multi-faceted artist. The author's lucidly written text is enriched by more than 500 reproductions and a selection of rare, historical photographs.

The book may well be considered a model in writing about an artist and his work, and will be of immense value to coming generations of art scholars and connoisseurs.
