Jogen Chowdhury
(1939)

Man and Woman (with Yellow and Grey)



Jogen Chowdhury's oeuvre addresses the human form in its myriad roles. He reveals the body in diverse situations - alone, scarred, aged and mutilated, dressed in fineries, couples enacting various interactions- some intimate while others distanced and even hostile. In Chowdhury's works, the body not only tells its own tale but also acts as an enabler of the episode being enacted in the painting. It is both the alphabet and the story.
