Akbar Padamsee is one of the founding fathers of modern Indian art. This multidimensional overview of his career, which spans over 50 years, captures the life and works of a path-breaking artist, and seeks to relocate Padamsee in the present context, separating his art from the large body of works collectively termed ‘modernist.’ The contributors include art historians, artists, critics and collectors.
