Biography   Francis Newton Souza


Born in Saligao, in Goa, India, in 1924, Souza studied at the Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai, but was expelled for his participation in the Quit India Movement. In 1949, he left for London where he supported himself doing occasional journalism, writing articles for magazines like Studio International and ArtNews and Review. He rocketed to international fame in the 1950s following a 1955 solo show at London's Gallery One, in which all of his paintings were sold. The next decade saw a bevy of solo shows, a 1962 monograph, an Italian government-sponsored stint in Italy, and acquisitions by London's Tate Gallery. Backed by the patronage of Eugene Schuster, of the London Arts Group gallery, in Detroit, Souza migrated to New York in 1967, wChristie's, Mumbai   ...  Displaying 768 of 3440 characters.
