Biography   Abdur Rahman Chughtai


Abdur Rahman Chughtai is remembered today as possibly the most distinguished Pakistani artist of the 20th century.  His work draws from a shared South Asian cultural heritage, and he was one of the few Pakistani artists to be recognized in India before and after the 1947 partition.  Chughtai began his training at the Mayo School of Art in Lahore in 1911, where he was taught by Samarendranath Gupta, himself a pupil of Abanindranath Tagore.  The influence of the Bengal School is visible in Chughtai's early work, but what distinguishes Chughtai is his exceptional skill as a draughtsman.  Many of his paintings were large-format—exuberant, expansive works rendered in soft, meditative colors and bold, flowing lines.  EChristie's Mumbai   ...  Displaying 767 of 5559 characters.
