Women Seen and Remembered
‘Our responses to works of art or literature can be of various kinds—to start with a surface relationship; sliding over it to keep up your senses. Then an encounter with its details, its context, story, its style.Then the discovery of a special feature that lifts you up into a new horizon: like a tower’. —K. G. Subramanyan
‘In the context of K. G. Subramanyan’s oeuvre: images of women occupy a predominant place. In the two available volumes of his drawings, and which we may consider representative of his oeuvre, nearly one half of the images are of women or those in which women predominate’. —R. Sivakumar
For most artists, the practice of drawing is a ‘means’ to an ‘end’. Not so for Subramanyan—most of his drawings are ‘ends’ in themselves. This volume of 322 drawings of women spans six decades of the artist’s work and make up the exhibition 'Women Seen and Remembered: Drawings by K. G. Subramanyan'.
The volume also includes an essay by R. Sivakumar.
