05/16/10 Painted in 1963 just before he traveled to New York for the first time, this Untitled oil on canvas by Vasudeo S. Gaitonde anticipates a moment of transition for the artist and in India’s fledgling commercial art world. As is characteristic of his mature career works, this painting integrates saturated color fields with geometric forms, though the almost-continuous, single horizontal band of symbolic imagery dividing this canvas is unusual and experimental. Given the longstanding bias against abstraction in Indian modernist art, the extreme minimalist composition of this painting is particularly noteworthy, and reflects the artist’s fervent and courageous individualism. Though he is remembered as India’s pioneering abstract artist, Gaitonde preferred the term ‘non-objective’ for his paintings, claiming often that “there is no such thing as abstract art.” His latest representational works were painted in the late 1950s, and included The Bird and An Egg (1957), which was exhibited at the Young Asian Artists’ Exhibition in Tokyo, and an Untitled work (1959) depicting a flattened, abstracted airplane, which was commissioned by AirIndia but never bought and still hangs in fellow artist Bal Chhabda’s Mumbai home. By the early 1960s, Gaitonde’s work was consistently and obsessively non-figural, and he began to work towards a formal purity of line and color in his canvases, aided conceptually by his engagement with Zen Buddhism. This Untitled work and other of Gaitonde’s paintings strongly evoke the feeling of a landscape – with its horizon line separating a deep-blue sky from an equally rich sea, but they need not be read in terms of conventional categories. In 1964, Gaitonde was awarded a prestigious Rockefeller Fellowship, which offered him, along with other leading artists like M.F. Husain and Tyeb Mehta, the opportunity to spend up to a year living in New York. By this time, New York was the center of the contemporary art world, and India’s artists were increasingly interested in experimentation with new ideas and forms of painting, as well as myriad other mediums, especially film. Post-war art and the scene in New York also provided an alternative to the heritage of figurative painting in London, with which Indian artists had a natural, if uneasy, relationship through shared colonial and postcolonial histories. Gaitonde met quick success in New York, exhibiting at the Graham Gallery and Willard Gallery in the mid 1960s, and his exposure to Abstract Expressionism there initiated a significant turn in his work, as he began creating fields of color with a roller instead of a paintbrush.

Through this time, many of India’s artists sought to exhibit their work in New York and other centers because of the lack of gallery infrastructure in India. In 1959, Bal Chhabda had opened Bombay’s first commercial gallery, Gallery 59, in the storefront of a building in which Gaitonde and his close associates Tyeb Mehta and Nasreen Mohamedi worked. Gallery 59 hosted the first solo exhibitions of several leading artists, including Gaitonde’s in 1961, but it was forced to shut down in 1962 owing to a dispute with management. Even after two permanent galleries opened in the city in 1963, enabling the start of a developed art scene, many artists continued to sell their works locally through their studios and homes in transactions that were rarely documented, but are remembered through the enthusiastic anecdotes and exchanges that emerged from such encounters. Beth Citron Beth Citron is a New York-based art historian and critic, who received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania where she completed her dissertation on Contemporary Art in Bombay, 1965-1995.

05/16/10 By 1982, Fernando Botero was enjoying success as a painter of accentuated, corpulent human forms that cited as well as challenged Italian renaissance painting, history, religion, politics and Columbian folklore. By the mid 1970’s, however, Botero was able to afford to convert his Paris studio into a sculptor’s atelier, where he could explore three-dimensional forms and have his works cast at a foundry. Botero’s sculpture made tangible the heft and form that had been such integral themes to his paintings and murals. With its rich, deep brown patina and highly polished surface, in ‘Mujer’ Botero revels in the exaggerated physicality of the female form as well as the literal weight and richness of bronze. Botero’s female figure doesn’t just make reference to pre-Columbian mythic gods, but by her size and presence she becomes an object to be worshipped in her own right. In the 1982 Marlborough Gallery exhibition in which this work was shown for the first time, Botero also presented glistening snakes, fertility goddesses and disembodied hands. All executed in the same rounded, lush, exaggerated forms polished to a rich chocolate sheen, these sculptures remind us just how much the sensuality of physical form should be enjoyed and celebrated. Chosen to highlight some of the most important public streets and landmarks around the world, Fernando Botero’s impressive and robust figures grace the streets of Park Avenue in New York City, the Champs Elysees in Paris and the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy.

05/16/10 Marcel Duchamp coined the now-ubiquitous term “mobile” to describe Alexander Calder’s graceful kinetic sculptures in 1931 after visiting Calder’s studio in Paris. The term applies not only to his well known hanging works but also to sculptures that combine stationary bases with moving elements made of wire and painted metal. While some of Calder’s smaller sculptures acted as maquettes for larger works, many were works unto themselves such as the excellent example, “Azul, Amarillo, Blanco, Sobre Rojo.” In 1955, Calder traveled to Caracas, Venezuela, where he set up a studio at the metal shop of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. That same year, the exhibition "Exposición Calder" was installed at Museo de Bellas Artes de Caracas. It would neither be the first nor the last time that Calder would visit and engage with curators and artists in Latin America; his interest in the culture, language and spirit of Central and South America would remain throughout his career. This sculpture, created the same year as his residency in Venezuela, is an excellent example of a mobile that, while standing at just under a foot tall, is imbued with the all of the whimsy, balance and charm that is unequivocally Calder.
