Catalogue Note

Watercolour provided 'Khakhar with a more playful and spontaneous kind of image-making... 'As a watercolourist, he is free of the pressure of The Masterpiece (part of the inheritance of western oil painting) and closer to the popular artists of Indian tradition...Khakhar's watercolours were mostly of things seen - a still life, a tree, a shrine, a single figure, or perhaps some vignette glimpsed from the bus or train. Unlike the oil paintings, they did not attempt to create some encompassing world.' (T. Hyman Bhupen Khakhar, Chemould Publications and Arts, Mumbai 1998, p. 63)
