This monograph presents a perspective on the art of Bhupen Khakhar (b.1934), one of the most significant Indian artists of this century. Written by Khakhar's friend, the English painter Timothy Hyman, the book sets out to recreate the context in which Khakhar spent his early years, and that in which he reached maturity as a painter. The integration of the painter's work and the material and psychological circumstances of his life emerges as a leitmotif in the book, which brings the discussion on his work into the mid-90s. Khakhar's biography is also provided in the book.
