Description:

Zainul Abedin (1914 1976) is the pioneer of the modern art movement in Bangladesh. He founded the Government Institute of Arts at Dhaka in 1948. Abedin came into eminence at only 29 through his unforgettable sketches of the 1943 Bengal famine. With these brush sketches in black ink done in Calcutta Abedin became the first important sub continental artist of social realism and an artist of the down trodden. Subsequently Abedin went through several phases of stylistic transformations such as the water colour landscapes of oriental sensitivity or the stylized romantic figuratives in guache and oil of the fifties based on folk motifs depicting village maidens and finally the return to brush drawings with black ink in the late sixties and early seventies. However whatever the style or technique Abedin had always remained close to the common people from whom he himself had come by faithfully depicting their land their life and their almost unending struggles. In his art has there been a wonderful synthesis of the artistic tradition of the East and the West. 80 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 65085
