Titel: Safiuddin Ahmed: Great Masters of Bangladesh
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Beautifully illustrated, this is the first volume in the groundbreaking Great Masters of Bangladesh series of monographs. The genesis of the modern art movement in Bangladesh traces back to the partition of India (1947) and the establishment of the Dhaka Art Institute in 1948 by Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin and several of his contemporaries. This pioneering group included, among others, Safiuddin Ahmed, Anwarul Haque and Quamrul Hassan. Over the years, these dedicated visionaries and the institution they established have produced talented artists, many of whom have earned recognition at home and abroad. This book explores Safiuddin Ahmeds extraordinary contribution to Bangladeshi art and society, in a series of drawings, paintings, woodcuts and etchings, with more than two hundred colour plates tracing a lifetime of artistic achievements, that is virtually unknown in the West. Ahmeds works portray swirling, vigorous forms and motifs, with spectacular symbols, such as eyes, fishing nets and boats; continuously evoking the anxiety and disquiet of the times. For over sixty years, he has led the way in developing painting and printmaking in Bangladesh. Sophistication, a deep love of music, and a strong inclination to literature, is what underpins Ahmeds approach to life while his struggle for purity has always been his hallmark.
