Title:Contemporary Indian Art -- 1950's
Author:Appasamy, Jaya
Enumeration:Vol. 21 Issue no. 1; December 1967, p. 6-12 [Supplement to Vol. 21 No. 1]
Abstract:In the 1950s, there was an all increasing demand for art and its application to production and industry, and the emergence of a class who appreciated the fine arts. In this decade, art moved away from nationalistic idioms and figurative and romantic styles to more intellectual and abstract tendencies. Some important artists of the period were Prodosh Das Gupta, N.S. Bendre, Sailoz Mookherjea, Souza, Satish Gujral, Akbar Padamsee, M.F. Husain, K.C.S. Paniker, and Badri Narayan.
