                 Paintings by S Sobha Singh  

I only want to paint beauty and the goodness of life, which are getting rarer day by day. With me, the concept of 'Satyam, Shivam Sundaram' becomes 'Sundram, Shivam and Satyam' (Beauty, Goodness and Truth) in that order.
            One of Sobha Singh's Greatest Masterpieces - "Guru Nanak" in the "Aashirwad" pose. This was created during late 50's. The hand of Guru Nanak was recreated by a renowned palmist Pundit Agnihotri of Hamirpur after a thorough study of the 'Janam Patri' of Guru Nanak

Alfred Hallett: born 1914 in England, he exhibited twice at the Royal Academy, London (1937 and 1938) before migrating to British India in 1940 where he managed a cloth mill in Dhariwal, Punjab and from where he was able to buy the property on Dharamkot to pursue his love of painting full-time. Known primarily as a figure painter, his prolific output of portraits, landscapes and imaginative religious and abstract oil paintings can be seen today from Amritsar to New Delhi as well as on walls in Southern England. A confirmed bachelor all his life, he died in his beloved Dharamkot studio in 1986, aged 72


             Paintings by Nicholas Roerich  

The pursuit of refinement and beauty was sacred for Roerich. He believed that although earthly temples and artifacts may perish, the thought that brings them into existence does not die but is part of an eternal stream of consciousness — man's aspirations nourished by his directed will and by the energy of thought. Finally, he believed that peace on Earth was a prerequisite to planetary survival and the continuing process of spiritual evolution, and he exhorted his fellow man to help achieve that peace by uniting in the common language of Beauty and Knowledge.
     Nicholas Roerich died in Kullu on December 13, 1947. His body was cremated and its ashes buried on a slope facing the mountains he loved and portrayed in many of his nearly seven thousand works.





              Sculpture Gallery by Ajay  

Sculpture is a mean as well as an objective for my expression. Ranging figurative work to those involving only abstracts such as light and colour.   My sculpture make the most use of locally available materials. Social commentary underlined with self depreciating humour has been one of the main features of my figurative work. Using light as a material, I have endeavored to explore the relationship between object and drawing where mass and space is provide a frame of reference. In all such works I have followed the ancient Indian tradition of the frontal sculpture. 


                               INDIAN DRAWINGS:   

16th to19th century  Pahari drawings, done between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, are comparatively calmer, refined, finely drawn and lyrical. These drawings are among the most graceful and appealing in Indian painting. Work of the artist families of Guler and Chamba, chiefly from the eighteenth century, is remarkable and displays all the best qualifies of Pahari painting, While the style of these two schools is derived from the late Mughal paintings, the mood is not; they are gentle, spontaneous and more lyrical

The World of Pahari Miniature Painting :- The activity of the Pahari painting continued till the close of the 19th  century . The changes in this period reflect degenerating standards because of the prevailing political conditions Read more
