Ram Kumar Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1924 - d. 2018

Abstract artist Ram Kumar belongs to the early group of Progressives in post-colonial India. His formal education was in economics, but after seeing his first art exhibit in 1945 he had a complete change of heart, and soon after began to study art. While studying in Paris, he was inspired by the Social Realists Kathe and Fourgenon and became interested in the peace movement. Early themes in artist Ram Kumar's abstract paintings for sale involve his interest in the human condition, especially the phenomenon of human isolation and despair in crowded cities. Through the years, Ram Kumar's artistic motif has moved from hopeless city settings to country landscapes. Yet his abstract landscapes portray both a delight in nature and the growing violence of humanity. Kumar's work garners high demand, with The Vagabond (1956) selling for over one million dollars. Feel the intense emotional pull of modern and contemporary abstract paintings at auction and online.

It wasn't until 1945 that he formally embarked on a journey into the realm of visual arts.

As a vital member of the Progressive Artist’s Group, alongside icons such as F.N. Souza, S.H. Raza, and M.F. Husain, Ram Kumar's significance lies in being part of the first generation of post-colonial Indian artists.Ram Kumar's artistic repertoire predominantly features abstract interpretations of landscapes characterized by jagged topographical contours, infused with an ambient sense of despair. His nuanced exploration of the concept of landscape involves employing various textures to articulate its architectonics through abstract strokes, reflecting his profound preoccupation with nature, existence, and the intricate relationships between space, objects, and individuals.Throughout his lifetime, Ram Kumar garnered numerous accolades, including the prestigious Padma Shri in 1972 and the Prem Chand Puraskar for a collection of short stories. His legacy endures through retrospectives and exhibitions, with the artist passing away in 2018 at the age of 93.

        Est: $50,000 - $100,000

        Kumar, Ram (1924-2018) Maisons (Banares series) (1962) Description (FR): Huile sur toile signée et datée en Hindu en bas à droite. Ram Kumar est un peintre et écrivain indien né à Simla en 1924. Souvent décrit comme étant l'un des plus grands peintre abstrait d'Inde, il commence pourtant sa carrière dans l'art figuratif, qu'il développe davantage lorsqu'il déménage pour Paris. Durant l'hiver 1960, l'artiste a visité la ville sacrée de Varanasi, en Inde, qui lui aura inspirée l'une de ses séries les plus marquante intitulée Banares, dont cette oeuvre est extraite. Il y représente cette ville de façon abstraite, sombre et austère à travers une palette de couleur largement dominée par le noir et le gris. Une représentation troublante composée d'un arrangement de lignes et de traits de pinceaux bouleversés, qui reflètent parfaitement le mystère qui planne au-dessus de la ville sacrée. Cette oeuvre s'intègre donc à la transition picturale de l'artiste de la figuration à l'abstraction, à travers une expérience personnelle dans une ville qui, selon les croyances hindoues, permet la libération. Description (EN): Oil on canvas signed and dated in Hindu at lower right. Ram Kumar is an Indian painter and writer born in Simla in 1924. Often described as one of India's greatest abstract painters, he nevertheless began his career in figurative art, which he developed further when he moved to Paris. In the winter of 1960, the artist visited the sacred city of Varanasi, India, which inspired one of his most influential series, Banares, from which this work is taken. In it, he depicts the city in an abstract, sombre and austere way, using a color palette dominated by black and gray. An unsettling representation composed of an arrangement of disrupted lines and brushstrokes, perfectly reflecting the mystery hovering over the sacred city. This work is thus part of the artist's pictorial transition from figuration to abstraction, through a personal experience in a city which, according to Hindu beliefs, allows liberation.

        ATTR TO RAM KUMAR INDIAN ABSTRACT ACRYLIC PAINTING 2009

        Est: $100 - $150

        An acrylic on canvas painting depicting an abstract composition attributed to Ram Kumar, Indian, 1924 to 2018. Signed and dated on verso. Comes with a certificate of authenticity and a tube for canvas. Born in 1924 in Simla, Ram Kumar was among Indias leading modernists. He studied Economics at St. Stephens College, New Delhi, in 1946. Following this, he went to Paris to study painting under Andre Lhote and Fernard Leger in 1949-1952. Ram Kumar, like many of his confreres among the first generation of post-colonial Indian artists - including such figures as F N Souza, M F Husain, Paritosh Sen, Jehangir Sabavala, Krishen Khanna, S H Raza and Akbar Padamsee - combined an internationalist desire with the need to belong emphatically to their homeland. One of a kind artwork. Modernist Fine Art, Abstract Paintings And Wall Decor Collectibles.

        RAM KUMAR (1924-2018) "UNTILTED" VARANASI LANDSCAPE, SIGNED BOTTOM RIGHT, OIL ON CANVAS Size: 48 x 35 inches Provenance: French Collection late 90's Acquired in the early 2000's from a British Based Family Property of a Indian Gentleman 2007 Thence by descent Footnotes: Born in 1924 in Simla, Ram Kumar, a luminary in India's modernist art movement, initially aspired to be a writer while still in school during the early 1930s. It wasn't until 1945 that he formally embarked on a journey into the realm of visual arts. After completing his studies in economics at St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi, in 1946, he pursued his passion for painting in Paris under the tutelage of Andre Lhote and Fernand Léger from 1949 to 1952, following a brief stint as a journalist. As a vital member of the Progressive Artist’s Group, alongside icons such as F.N. Souza, S.H. Raza, and M.F. Husain, Ram Kumar's significance lies in being part of the first generation of post-colonial Indian artists.Ram Kumar's artistic repertoire predominantly features abstract interpretations of landscapes characterized by jagged topographical contours, infused with an ambient sense of despair. His nuanced exploration of the concept of landscape involves employing various textures to articulate its architectonics through abstract strokes, reflecting his profound preoccupation with nature, existence, and the intricate relationships between space, objects, and individuals.Throughout his lifetime, Ram Kumar garnered numerous accolades, including the prestigious Padma Shri in 1972 and the Prem Chand Puraskar for a collection of short stories. His legacy endures through retrospectives and exhibitions, with the artist passing away in 2018 at the age of 93.
