Artist or Maker

KHAKHAR, Bhupen (Indian 1934 - 2003).

Provenance

Acquired by the present owner during the exhibition 'The Other Self' (1996) featuring Khakhar and organised by the Foundation for Indian Artists (F.I.A.)/Galerie Schoo at the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam. The original label of the gallery is attached to the reverse of the painting. At the time this gallery was very important in this field and responsible for the sale of lots of works by Indian artists to public and private collections. The foundation organized several projects concerning the collaboration of Indian and Dutch artists and worked together with The National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. We add the original catalogue of the exhibition as well as the documentation issued by the Stedelijk.

Notes

Born in Bombay, Bhupen Khakhar became one of the most notable Indian contemporary artists. While abstract painting dominated the art scene in India, Khakhar confronted it with his distinctive figurative style. Using rich visuality of Indian popular culture, he created amusing narratives in bold colours and complex spatial arrangements. Moreover, Bhupen Khakhar was the first Indian artist to openly express his homosexuality in his works.'Man with a Monkey' is one of the famous Bhupen Khakhar's portraits of middle-class Indians in a satirical, carnival manner with an animal being as important for the artist as the human character himself.
