        KRISHNAJI HOWLAJI ARA (1914 – 1985): FEMALE NUDE

        Est: €4,000 - €8,000

        Gouache on paper. Signed “Ara”, India, Bombay. 1st half of the 20th cent. This colorful painting shows a naked, female body with amazing artistic power. Her womb and thighs dominate the painting with their curved lines, vaulting towards the beholder. The eroticism of this image has been rendered by the artist in a refined manner with a corresponding effect in its sensual use of colors. The young woman has a dynamic posture and looks towards a man standing behind and to her side. A spatial atmosphere forms the background.Ara belonged, like Souza, to the group of Progressive Artists in Bombay (called Mumbai today). After a period focused on landscape painting, he specialized in the depiction of nudes and became the founder of another artists’ center, remaining in the city for the rest of his life. His first exhibition in Bombay, held in 1942, was a great success and was followed by further exhibitions in India, but also in Europe, Japan and Russia. Due to his relatively small oeuvre, his paintings, and in particular his nudes, are particularly sought after. Expertise: Wolfmar Zacken Sohel Chawla was a successful business man from Delhi who spent many years in Vienna. The part of his collection, which we here offer, was mainly acquired in the art trade of Vienna. The chief reason for his collecting activity, which he perpetuated with considerable specialized knowledge, sense for quality and great commitment, was to establish a private Asian museum in his native city of New Delhi. Because of severe illness, it was impossible for him to realize his plan and he thus decided to submit us the entire complex of his "Viennese collection" for sale. 這位收藏家是個來自新德里的古董拒買,曾有數年住在維也納。這次所介紹的藝術品主要來自他的維也納分點。他數十年的努力,知識和質量敏感都曾進入他的收藏活動,結果之一為在其城市,新德里,收藏到了一個原來屬於私人亞洲美術館的收藏的全部藏品。很不幸的是這位收藏家最近生病極為嚴重,無法實現自己原來對藝術藏品的願望,結果把全部維也納分店的收藏提供給拍賣公司給以賣出。

His first solo exhibition already took place in 1942 at the Bombay Art Society.

In the 1950s, Ara, whose preferred techniques were watercolor and gouache, began to paint voluminous female nudes. (fea) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Signed 'ARA' lower left and label on reverse says 'Artist; K H Ara/Title; Carnation./Cost Price; Rs 600/Purchased on 15/11/65' on reverse A prolific artist, Ara was constantly focused on still lives while his contemporaries explored other subjects. 'Ara's ceaseless experiments with bowls, fruits and vases with flowers were to develop a compositional syntax to which he lent a rugged buoyancy and an unremitting compassion. His singular achievement lay in coalescing these elements into a distinctive style which made an impact on the period.' (Y. Dalmia, The Making of Modern Indian Art: The Progressives, Oxford University Press New Delhi, New Delhi, 2001. p 129.)
