This volume covers over 45 years of the work of Ram Kumar, dating from the early fifties to the present day — starting from his early period of struggle, his Varanasi days and his figurative works mostly concentrating on early industrialisation of India and unemployed youth to his accomplishment as one of the foremost living artists in India. This book gives insight into Ram Kumar's personality, as an artist, a philosopher and a writer. His interview and unpublished notebooks are included. Noted critics, friends and fellow artists lend their perspectives on the artist as well. With detailed chronology and selected bibliography.
