Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in 1925 in what is now Faislabad in Pakistan, Krishen Khanna grew up in Lahore, only studying art after he graduated from college at evening classes held at the Mayo School of Art there.  In 1947, Khanna’s family moved to Shimla as a result of the Partition of India and Pakistan, and Khanna was deeply affected by not only the change in his personal life, but also the socio-political chaos that reigned around him.  His early works are reproductions of the scenes that were indelibly (showing 500 of 5431 characters).
