V S Gaitonde Untitled In the mid-1980s, V S Gaitonde's artistic practice changed drastically because of an accident that caused him to take a nearly eight year hiatus from painting on canvas. Gaitonde turned his attention to smaller format works on paper, as seen in the present lot. "His ink drawings from 1985-87...form an important part of his overall oeuvre and consist of nonmimetic calligraphic and hieroglyphic markings made with spontaneous gestures and rhythmic...

PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF MILOSLAV KRÁSA, CZECH REPUBLIC Vasudeo S. Gaitonde 1924 - 2001 Signed and dated in Devanagari lower right and further dated and inscribed 'Rs.150 / GAITONDE 52' on reverse Bearing Pundole Gallery label on reverse Gouache on paper 30.2 x 27.5 cm. (11 ⅞ x 10 ¾ in.) Painted in 1952 Provenance Acquired by the famous Czech Indologist and historian Miloslav Krása (1920 - 2004) in India in the 1950s Thence by descent Krása, an employee of the Ministry of Culture, was the head of the Oriental Department and initiated several intercultural projects. Between 1954 and 1997, he externally taught modern Indian history at several faculties of oriental studies at the Charles University in Prague and elsewhere. Between 1959 and 1989, he worked as a researcher at the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and participated in research activities in New Delhi, Calcutta, Mumbai, London, Moscow and Brussels. In 1987, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree by the Visva-Bharati University in Santiniketan. Catalogue Note In 1943, Vasudeo S. Gaitonde was awarded a scholarship to study at the prestigious Sir J.J. School of Art in Bombay where he studied the precepts of line, form and colour that were employed in Indian miniature paintings. The current lot, with its intimate size, invites the viewer to closely examine its finer details, in much the same way that miniature paintings do. Along with the small format, this painting bears other similarities to traditional Indian painting such as removal of perspectival space to eliminate depth, bringing the subject matter together into one picture plane. Speaking about the influence of Indian miniatures and his 1950s works, Gaitonde has said, “I excluded the figures in the miniatures and learned to retain only the proportion, the composition sense, the combination of colors and the feeling. Perhaps that was my initiation into modern painting" (M. Menezes, Vasudeo Santu Gaitonde: Sonata of Solitude, Bodhana Arts and Research Foundation, Mumbai, p. 56). Gaitonde’’’’’’’’s style evolved dramatically throughout his lifetime. This work from 1952 is one of the earliest in his oeuvre, when he moved away from pure figuration and started to include elements of the abstract. Paul Klee’’’’’’’’s work in particular, was a significant influence on Gaitonde’’’’’’’’s opus in the 1950s. Having been associated with Abstraction, Expressionism, Surrealism, Cubism, and Futurism, it is difficult to classify Klee’’’’’’’’s luminous watercolours. Nevertheless, they were deeply rooted in colour theory. The way tints impacted the mood of each painting, and the emphasis on form and tone, took root in Gaitonde’’’’’’’’s paintings during this time and continued throughout his lifetime. His works evoke a range of emotions from the bright and whimsical little watercolours in the 1950s such as this current lot, to the moody abstractions of the 60s and 70s.
