拍品資料及來源

‘… watercolour has provided [Bhupen 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... In the seventies, 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, Bombay, 1998, p. 63)
