"Each part of the canvas is painted with loving care, each brushstroke is aware of itself, every impression is infused with light, which makes the picture surface vibrate with a transcendental glow. Gulgee, while painting, wants to carry the viewer along by appealing to his emotional and sensual faculties." (I. Hassan, Painting in Pakistan, Lahore, 1991, pp. 119-120)
Academically and professionally, Gulgee trained as an engineer from Columbia and Harvard University respectively, but his real passion lay in the arts. He had an innate gift of being able to capture a moment in time, and execute it with élan. He held his first solo exhibition in Stockholm in 1950. Today, he is considered to be one of Pakistan’s most important modern artists. His works are a part of numerous distinguished private and state collections globally.
