Black Brown and the Blue
This retrospective exhibition with 150 artworks by artist Shuvaprasanna Bhattacharya is an interesting mix of tradition and contemporaneity. It includes some amazing charcoal drawings and etchings around the City of Joy, his abode and playing fields since birth. On till March 31 at Lalit Kala Academy, Rabindra Bhawan, Mandi House.
The exhibition celebrates the season of love — a sentiment around which artist Jagannath Paul paints his canvases. The splashes of red and the semi-abstract forms convey this emotion beautifully. His soft lines and the charcoal tints display well the affection and desire the subjects of the composition manifest. On till February 20 at India Habitat Centre, Open Palm Court, Gate No. 2 Lodhi Road
