  • ABOUT Jogen Chowdhury

    Born in 1939 in Faridpur, Bengal, eminent Indian contemporary painter Jogen Chowdhury is an alumnus of the Government College of Art and Crafts, Kolkata, after which he studied at the prestigious Ecole Nationale, Superieure des Beaux - Arts, Paris from 1965 to 1967. He has held many solo and group exhibitions throughout his career and has been the 1966 recipient of the Prix le France de la Jeune Peinture, Paris. He was awarded the Kalidas Samman by the Government of Madhya Pradesh in 2001.

    Pastel, ink and watercolour is Chowdhury’s speciality. His artworks feature meandering lines which contour soft, flaccid figures. Cross hatching is another tool he frequently uses, to achieve variations in the tone and texture of his artwork. Jogen Chowdhury is known for marrying traditional imagery with a very contemporary style of painting, in a blend of urbane self-awareness and a highly localized Bengali influence.

  • ABOUT Limited Edition Prints

    Limited Edition Prints are a series of identical prints of an artwork, commissioned by the artist. Restricted to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces, each print is numbered and signed by the artist, establishing its’ authenticity.

    Because the number of prints is limited, signed prints of acclaimed artists hold value, and can be investment-worthy, just like original works of art. Christie’s and Sotheby’s – the world’s two most renowned auction houses – hold auctions exclusively for prints. A Pablo Picasso print sold for US$1.7 million in 2010!

    There are different techniques in printmaking, including offset printing, digital printing, lithography and serigraphy. Serigraphy, or silk screen printing is considered one of the most sophisticated techniques. In this process, thick, opaque colours are passed through the screen, creating prints with vibrant colours and beautiful textures, that make the artwork look just like a painting.

    Works by any artist are limited, and prints are a fantastic way for acclaimed artists, to make their art available to a larger number of people. This makes limited edition prints popular amongst new art buyers as well as seasoned art collectors.
