Meera Mukherjee: Purity of Vision

 
Geeti Sen (Author) Nandini Ghosh (Author) Ors. (Author)
Synopsis

Explores the art of little-known artist Meera Mukherjee -Featuring excerpts from her diaries and letters as well as essays by various scholars Choosing bronze as her favorite medium, Meera Mukherjee (1923-1998) formed her own simplistic, modernist, life-like world of sculptures. They possess a 'lifeforce' that speaks to the ordinary being instead of alienating them. Mukherjee's commitment to her practice made her valiant enough to step out of her comfort zone and dedicate herself to visual arts. Her devotion to the craft traditions of India guided her to Madhya Pradesh, Bengal and South India. The artist's language is similar to that of the quotidian life in her immediate surroundings, shedding light upon social issues. This one of a kind volume offers an understanding of Mukherjee's art through the most comprehensive collection of essays by writers who have known her personally and professionally, as well as from translated texts and excerpts from her diary and letters. Published in association with Akar Prakar Gallery, Kolkata, Emami Art, New Delhi, and supported by Raza Foundation.
