RAZA: An Introduction to his Painting
RAZA: An Introduction to his Painting
Description
About the Book:

Raza remains characterised by the crossbreeding of the modernity of Europe and the USA and the spirituality of India. His evolution can be observed in the successive stages that structured his life: at every moment of his thought process Life, Nature and their Mysteries have been forever present.

His Indian canvases and those of his early years in Paris were realistic in the sense that they show the visible. Late, a he distanced himself from this concept to tend more and more towards the gestual. In the next stage, the Bindu and its various manifestations led Raza along the path to Truth. His attempts at purification have lately culminated in his White period.

This book explores important milestones in Raza's life and work. It looks at his childhood in Madhya Pradesh, India, and his life as a young painter in Bombay. It traces his departure for France and his discovery of Europe and the United States which represent a crucial period in his pictorial evolution from the figurative to the gestual. Finally, it studies the period from about 1970 to 2000 during which Raza's art came to maturity and he succeeded in amalgamating two worlds as divergent as India and the Occident, worlds between which he still constantly moves back and forth.

About the Author:

Michel Imbert was born in 1962 at Menton, on the Cote d'Azur in France. After graduating from High School he obtained a diploma in International Economics from the New York Institute of Finance.

In 1991 Michel returned to his first love, the History of Art. He passed an exam qualifying him as a city guide acknowledged by the Ministry of Culture and obtained a job with the Cultural and Historical Services of the City of Menton. He also works for the Art Museum of Menton teaching Art History in schools.

Michel matriculated in the Art History section of the University of Provence in Aix-en-Provence where he obtained an M. A. for his thesis: La Vie et I' Oeuvre du peintre indien Raza (The life and the works of Raza, and Indian painter).

In order to further study contemporary Indian painting Michel accompanied Raza to India, where he visited exhibitions and museums and met with painters, collectors and art dealers in New Delhi and Mumbai. He pursues his studies at the University of Provence.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
