Size: 19 x 15 inches

Provenance:

Acquired directly from a British Based Private Collection

Footnotes:

Ganesh Pyne, a luminary in the Indian art realm, forged a distinctive artistic
universe, transcending the immediate and mundane. Born on June 11, 1937, in Kolkata,
West Bengal, Pyne's creative vision transcends the conventional, with a deep-seated belief
in a parallel world unfolding within his mind. Rooted in childhood memories, his artistic
narrative navigates the terrain of personal associations and an inner world, often running
parallel to the realities of his external environment. A pervasive sense of sadness, stemming
from a childhood marked by profound traumas, infuses his work with a unique emotional
resonance.Pyne's formative years were shaped by diverse influences, with his grandmother,
Nandarani, emerging as a pivotal figure. Gifted with imagination, she wove enchanting tales,
leaving an indelible impact on Pyne's worldview. His encounter with Abanindranath Tagore's
exhibition in 1952 marked a transformative moment, inspiring him to pursue a path in art.
Despite familial opposition, he enrolled in the Government Art College, steering towards
oriental painting while drawing from western art developments.Pyne's early works, like the
1955 watercolour 'Winter's Morning,' exhibited an undeniable talent. His art garnered

attention, even drawing praise from Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Pyne's journey
continued as he explored group formations and artistic alliances, contributing to the
formation of the Society of Contemporary Artists in 1963.The 1960s marked a paradoxical
period for Pyne, liberated from academic constraints yet grappling with life's contrasts.
Despite encountering discouragement in the job market, a poignant encounter with a child
protecting a meager possession compelled him to embrace his artistic calling unequivocally.
His unwavering commitment to his craft elevated him to international acclaim within the
Bengal School of Art, leaving an enduring legacy until his passing in March 2013.
