Sadanand K. Bakre (1920-2007)
One of the founding members of the Progressive Artists’ Group, Baroda-born Sadanand Bakre spent his early years in the studio of sculptor Phadke, constantly fashioning figurines with leftover clay. When Bakre joined the Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai at the age of 19, art critic Rudi von Leyden introduced him to European and American Modernism. The artist turned to sculpture for practicable reasons, as painting materials were too expensive, and it was only when he moved to England that he began expanding his possibilities and used paint as a medium of artistic expression. There he became a member of the New Vision Group, a gathering of non-figurative and abstract artists. Though trained in and capable of accomplishing realistic works, Bakre found imitating subject matter from reality inconsequential. The 1960s, when this work was painted, was his most significant period as his paintings began revealing consanguinity with sculpture. This was also a busy time in the artist’s career, when he was assiduously exhibiting at galleries in London, Paris, Switzerland and the USA.
