In Journeys, noted art historian and curator Yashodhara Dalmia maps the developments in Indian art through her conversations with acclaimed Indian artists from across four generations. With more than 200 paintings, the two volumes include interviews of 30 Indian artists whose works have profoundly influenced the course of modern Indian art. In these rare interviews, acclaimed practitioners like J. Swaminathan, F.N. Souza, Tyeb Mehta, K.G. Subramanyan, Satish Gujral, and M.F. Husain
talk about critical issues in art creation and appreciation, including the social perception of art, influences in Indian art, and traditional versus modern sensibilities. From the initial years of art creation as it took root in a newly independent country to the struggle of modern Indian art to establish
itself in the face of conservative Indian sensibilities-these interviews reveal the social, cultural, and historical matrix of art and art creation spread over the last 60 years.
Volume I includes rare interviews of M.F. Husain, Tyeb Mehta, Satish Gujral, Anjolie Ela Menon, and Paristosh Sen, among others, which are accompanied by more than 120 paintings.
Volume II includes interviews of Jatin Das, Rameshwar Broota, Arpana Caur, Subodh Gupta, and Anju Dodiya, among others, which are accompanied by more than 80 paintings.
The two volumes together record the thoughts and ideas of artists whose works have profoundly influenced the course of Indian art in the twentieth century.
