An Untitled Legacy opens at Nine Fish Art Gallery

The solo exhibition features artwork by Manohar Mahatre

An Untitled Legacy, an exhibition by Manohar Mhatre, will be presented at the Nine Fish Art Gallery, Mumbai, from February 7-26, 2020.

The heavy presence of the progressive movement continues to live in and colour the minds of most in the art world in India. And it is usually presumed that while the legacy lives on, the artists have all gone. Thus, it is all the more interesting that one of the champions of this style, Manohar Mhatre, now 89, is still practicing it. Chosen to have long self-marginalised himself, he will display his works in a retrospective solo after decades.

Manohar Mhatre.

Mhatre was gently persuaded to bring forth and display 50 years’ worth of his work. To view his works at this show is to sense the links that have remained and continue to guide the history of Indian abstract painting. The intertextuality that his canvases exhibit and the seeming arguments that Mhatre’s paintings have with the earlier master’s works, as well as the many different technical and philosophical paths that Mhatre takes them down, is a history in colour.
