Indian, 1931–1991
Follow

Avinash Chandra’s artistic career was defined by the constant pursuit of a personal style that could reconcile Indian subjects and Western Modernism. Chandra received his early training at the Delhi Polytechnic Art School, which introduced him to European and American art movements. He then attended Central School of Art in London, where he began to create oil paintings influenced by Vincent van Gogh and Chaim Soutine. His early works were abstracted and colorful landscapes featuring the hills in his childhood city of Simla—a subject he would revisit near the end of his career. In the late 1950s, Chandra abandoned what he considered to be the rigidity inherent in his training, to freely pursue his individual aesthetic. The main subject in his later works was the female body, rendered in elegant lines and sometimes with erotic admiration.
