Born in March 1934 at Bhavnagar in Gujarat, Jyoti Bhatt completed his studies in painting and printmaking at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda. Bhatt began his artistic career as a painter and a printmaker in the 1950s, known especially for his modernist works. While cubist influences could be seen in his early works, Jyoti Bhatt’s later creations are colourful and fun, carrying motifs and elements from traditional Indian folk designs.
One of the founder members of the Centre of Photography, Baroda, he is also well-known for his photographic documentation of rural Indian culture. He learnt Mural and Fresco painting at the Vanasthali Vidyapith in Rajasthan, which was followed by a stint at the Academia Di Belle Arti, Naples and the Pratt Institute in New York. A recipient of multiple Gujarat State Awards, Bhatt was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Academy of Visual Media, New Delhi in 2005, and was also awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the Rabindra Bharati University in Kolkata in 2004.
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, the most sophisticated of which, is serigraphy, or silk screen printing. 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.
