Catalogue Note

"For example, the Bible and the life of Christ have been important to me, in the sense that Christianity being a humanitarian religion which lays down code that does not go into metaphysics …. Christianity has been in this country for centuries. I have done several pictures of Christ and St. Francis of Assisi. I have been to Assisi and seen his chapel. [His story is] very moving – a rich man’s son who throws away everything to the winds and becomes this fantastic human being. When you see and experience people like that, either in literature or otherwise, they are living saints." (K. Khanna, Scroll.in, - https://scroll.in/magazine/880720/krishen-khanna-interview-ill-be-painting-right-till-the-end-like-my-friend-tyeb-mehta-was, 15 June 2018)
